As the new year begins, Democrats remain focused on economic recovery and job creation to build on our efforts from 2009.  When President Obama took office last January, the economy was in free-fall, and America was losing nearly 700,000 jobs a month. Today, nearly a year later, the economy is seeing signs of improvement – thanks in large part to Democratic efforts like the Recovery Act. However, it is clear that Americans are still hurting and any job losses are too many, which is why Democrats will continue our efforts to strengthen the economy and put millions of Americans back to work.
