Tonight President Obama announced a common sense approach to getting this country back to work.  From investing in our infrastructure to bolstering our schools, the President has focused on what's important for America - putting people back to work. His proposal mirrors what we have been trying to do on the local level by helping small businesses and entrepreneurs start and grow, stimulating construction projects and assisting people with jobs training as they transition to new careers. The President’s plan goes a step further and gives people the resources to actually put these plans into action. Now we need Congress to act, we need business to invest and we need banks to provide capital.  In Boston, we have the knowhow and the plan to implement these national strategies locally, taking advantage of our diverse economic resources.  I support the President’s plan and urge Congress to act quickly to put Americans back to work.
