President Obama renews commitment to continue rebuilding the nation’s economic strength
Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) today released the following statement following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address to Congress:
"Tonight, the President renewed his commitment to continue rebuilding the nation’s economic strength. By doing so, we must focus on saving the jobs we already have and create new ones.
"The American people want Democrats and Republicans to work together to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and reduce the deficit. We must do everything that we can to deliver on all three.
"Also, as Chairman of the Pro-Trade Caucus, I applaud the President’s commitment to trade and American competitiveness as a way to create economic growth and reduce unemployment.
"My constituents continue to tell me that promoting economic growth and creating jobs should be the top issues for both Congress and President Obama. I intend to work with the President and my colleagues in Congress to get the job done for the American people."
