Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement supporting President Obama's blueprint to move our country forward with an economy built to last.
"While our businesses in our country added over three million new jobs over the past 22 months, there is still work to do. We need to continue building good jobs here in Colorado and our country and not outsourcing them overseas. We need to continue rebuilding confidence in our economy, and we need to be able to plan for our lives, our businesses and our future. Specifically, I support the President's plan for our new energy future utilizing our traditional energy and natural gas resources while at the same time pushing forward on investing in private partnerships to develop alternative energy sources which have created thousands of American jobs in our nation. These partnerships and work are already happening in Colorado's 7th CD at places like NREL, GE, Vestas and our research universities. It will lead the way in transforming how we power our nation, create new jobs of the future, and enhance our economic stability and national security. Through innovation, education and collaboration, Democrats and Republicans in Congress must work together in a bipartisan way, like we often do in Colorado, to move toward an economy built to last."
