President Obama’s address last night to a Joint Session of Congress called for a “new era of responsibility,” and assured the country that even when faced with economic and fiscal crises, America has the resilience to emerge stronger than before. As the President said in his remarks, the budget outline he will deliver to Congress this week “does not attempt to solve every problem or address every issue. It reflects the stark reality of what we’ve inherited – a trillion dollar deficit, a financial crisis, and a costly recession.” Congressional Democrats pledge to work together with the Obama Administration to enact an honest and responsible budget, restore confidence in our economy, and put our nation back on a path to a sustainable fiscal future.
