Tonight, the President covered a lot of ground. Giving a speech is one thing, but putting your political muscle behind creating jobs, improving our economy, and tackling our debt and deficit is another. Going forward, I hope the President--and Congress--will focus on areas of common ground whether it's boosting our manufacturing sector, investing in our infrastructure, or ensuring our future global competitiveness. We need to reduce our deficit, and I look forward to seeing the President's proposals on paper. If we set aside differences and work together, I believe Congress will have a productive year.
