State of the Union

By January 23, 2007General

Here’s a link to a transcript of tonight’s remarks by the President. He talked about “the will to face difficult challenges,” noting that, “Congress has changed, but not our responsibilities.” A great point on bipartisanship, too: “Our citizens don’t care which side of the aisle we sit on, as long as we cross the aisle to get things done.”

That was the theme that NAM President John Engler hit on tonight in his reaction statement, calling on Congress and the Administration to work together on manufacturers priorities reflected in the speech, like health care and energy security.

Let’s hope these folks commit themselves to stem the partisanship, if only for a little while.
