Senator Boxer: Strengthening the State of Our Union

U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
2013-02-14 06:36:55
Dear Friend: Our No. 1 priority must be keeping our economy growing. In his State of the Union address, President Obama laid out a bold roadmap for doing just that. He made absolutely clear that we can�t afford to lose 1 million jobs, which is exactly what would happen if we allow the sequester's automatic spending cuts to go into effect next month. We should also heed the President�s call to invest in a job-creating infrastructure plan, raise the minimum wage, and train our workers for new manufacturing and clean energy jobs.� He made an eloquent case for fixing our nation�s broken immigration system, reducing gun violence, and ensuring that no American voter is forced to wait in line for hours to cast a ballot.� And I agree with President Obama that Congress should give every responsible homeowner in America the chance to save $3,000 a year by refinancing at today�s low rates by passing my bill. The President is right � we must do more to combat climate change, and Superstorm Sandy was a wake-up call.� It is happening before our eyes, the science is clear, and we must act before it is too late.� I am committed to working with my colleagues on a comprehensive solution, and I strongly support the President�s efforts to move forward with executive actions to address this serious threat. Sincerely, Barbara Boxer United States Senator
