More reactions to Obama's speech
January 25, 2012 - Chris Morris
I posted Gillibrand's statement on the president's State of the Union address separately, simply because it was one of the longer reactions I received last night. Here's a few more.
U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY:
“The president's laser-like focus on jobs, the economy, and helping the average middle class family pay the bills is much needed, much called for, and the right thing, both substantively and politically.”
U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, NY-20:
“I firmly believe 2012 has the potential to be a year of growth and recovery for our country, if we make the right choices. Specifically, I think there are five areas with which we can find common ground. They include: comprehensive tax reform that creates a simpler and more fair tax code, regulatory relief, the expansion of domestic energy production, infrastructure investment, and bureaucratic consolidation and reform. These are all areas which will directly help our country’s hardworking families, small business owners, and farmers, while ensuring our nation returns to a path of fiscal responsibility. My constituents want Washington to achieve results and I’m confident that, working together in an era of divided government, we can do just that. Additionally, as a former soldier, I appreciated the President’s recognition of the fine work our men and women of the military have conducted as well as the parallel he drew between their missions around the world and what we need to accomplish here at home.”
And then there's this from New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who will help lead an investigation into the mortgage crisis:
"I would like to thank President Obama for his leadership in the creation of a coordinated investigation that marshals state and federal resources to bring justice for the victims of the misconduct that caused the mortgage crisis. In coordination with our federal partners, our office will continue its steadfast commitment to holding those responsible for the economic crisis accountable, providing meaningful relief for homeowners commensurate with the scale of the misconduct, and getting our economy moving again. The American people deserve a robust and comprehensive investigation into the global financial meltdown to ensure nothing like it ever happens again, and today's announcement is a major step in the right direction."
