The President is right, Americans deserve an economy that rewards those that work hard and play by the rules. We need to ensure it is not just those at the top that benefit in our economy, but all Americans who fight each day to make ends meet.
Our veterans made great sacrifices for our country and are coming back to find high unemployment, especially those who returned home from Iraq and Afghanistan. We must redouble our efforts to make sure our veterans not only have the services they need to transition to the civilian workforce, but jobs that can take advantage of the skills they gained while serving our country.
I agree with the President, we cannot go back to an economy based on outsourcing, bad debt, and phony financial profits. Moving forward, we must join together to build our economy.
