U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today said he looks forward to working with President Barack Obama to meet the challenges our nation faces. Bingaman released the following statement after the president’s first address to Congress:
“I thought the president gave a great speech. Clearly he has a plan for how to solve our short-term economic challenges, but he also has a plan for getting our economic house in order for the long term, as well. I think that’s great news for all of us.
“The president also has an agenda that he wants to pursue in addition to solving our economic problems, especially in the areas of energy and health care reform. I look forward to working with him on these and other issues.
“President Obama laid out a clear vision for where he wants to lead the country. I thought it was a very good and uplifting speech.”
