U.S. Rep. Richard Neal on Barack Obama's jobs speech: 'It's now up to Congress to put politics aside'
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following President Barack Obama's speech to a joint session of Congress on Thursday night, in which he proposed the American Jobs Act, U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal, D-Springfield, said Obama's proposals "provide a blueprint to strengthen the economy, create jobs and put more money in people's paychecks."
Neal issued the following statement following Obama’s speech:
"The range of proposals put forward by President Obama tonight provide a blueprint to strengthen the economy, create jobs, and put more money in people's paychecks. It's now up to Congress to put politics aside and approve this sensible plan to help boost employment. The people of western and central Massachusetts, like all Americans, are looking to Washington for bi-partisan solutions to the economic challenges we face; they also want the gridlock to end. I believe the tax cuts and investment in our nation's infrastructure outlined tonight can help jumpstart the economy and put us on the road to recovery, and in the process put thousands of Americans back to work."
