Richard Blumenthal on Obama’s speech

[Skip to the end]

I respectfully do not agree with his prescription to ‘protect our economic future.’

“I welcome the President’s acknowledgement of the economic pain felt widely and deeply and look forward to reviewing his plans to help middle class Americans, who are still hurting economically. We must enable Americans to find and keep good jobs with fair pay. And, to protect our economic future, we need vigorous, sustained fiscal discipline that enables deficit cutting.”
