Weekly Address: Working Together in the New Year to Grow Our Economy and Shrink Our Deficits

&feature=player_embedded


In this week’s address, President Obama talked about the bipartisan agreement that Congress reached this week which prevented a middle-class tax hike, congratulated the newly sworn-in Members of Congress, and looked forward to working with the new Congress in the new year to continue to grow our economy and shrink our deficits in a balanced way.

1. Me thinks the balance is long on cuts to US and short on input on their side.

I believe it is time for President Obama to start demanding Democratic concessions from the other side. Medicare for all Save Trillions. Negotiate Drug Prices save $160 Billion.

6. Well, this congress...the next congress...

and into his third term:

"Americans around the nation were shocked Friday as they heard about H.J.Res. 15. H.J.Res 15 proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment. "
