"President Obama did a fabulous job of laying out a blueprint for building a stronger America both in the short term and in the long term.
The President tonight was very much in touch with what's happening in this country and what I've been hearing as I travel around the state. He understands the frustrations citizens have with the disconnect between the policy debates in Washington and people's real lives. He called on Congress to act swiftly to help revive our manufacturing industry by ending incentives for companies to outsource jobs, providing targeted incentives for businesses to create jobs here at home, and ensuring that our students and workers get the education and training needed to fill those jobs.
I support President Obama's efforts to restore the values that made this country great -- fairness for all and responsibility from all."
