Earlier this month, President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress and presented his plan (the American Jobs Act) to strengthen our economy and create jobs. As our economy continues to struggle and the nation’s unemployment rate remains stubbornly high, Congress must take immediate, concrete steps toward reaching these goals. Given what’s at stake and what needs to happen for our nation to regain its economic footing, this is not the time for partisan bickering. Congress must work with the president in support of his plan to grow our economy through the creation of well-paying jobs by making investments to rebuild our nation’s crumbling infrastructure while maintaining support for critical public services, such as education and job training.
