WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the annual “Economic Report of the President” prepared by the Council of Economic Advisors:

 
“The economic report released today shows how the Obama Administration remains focused on responding to the short-term economic crisis while also laying a foundation for sustainable, long-term growth. The report reviews the dire economic and fiscal situations inherited by President Obama, and goes through the steps that were taken to address those challenges.  The report also puts forward a path toward long-term economic growth by restoring fiscal balance, reforming health care, promoting exports, and making investments in key areas like education and clean energy.
 
“Congress will continue to work with the President on our goals of creating jobs in the short-term and building a strong economy for the future.”
