Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The President’s State Of The Union Message Tuesday

“In the year ahead, Congress can put the people’s business on hold with more of the same partisan hostage taking as last year, or Congress can do the hard work of accelerating the economic recovery and opening the doors of opportunity.  The choice could not be clearer, and I’ve heard the answer first-hand, again and again in recent weeks as I’ve gone around Vermont.  The American people do not have the luxury of another year of congressional game playing and wheel spinning.  The President laid out an agenda for America’s working families.  Now let’s pass it.”
