Budget Proposals Make Critical Investments to Create Jobs, Strengthen America’s Middle Class
Anchorage – Jonathan Teeters, Organizing for America (OFA)-Alaska Director, issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s fiscal year 2010 budget proposal released today:
“Thanks to the steps taken by the Administration in the past year, our economy has moved from recession into recovery. The budget proposed by President Obama today ensures we keep America moving in the right direction by making critical investments in jobs and education while curbing government spending in the long-term.
“With middle-class families and businesses across the country continuing to manage through these tough economic times, the President’s budget ensures our nation has the necessary tools for future success with investments in education, clean energy, infrastructure, and innovation. At the same time, the President’s budget ensures we rein in spending growth so that it never threatens our government’s stability or global standing.
“OFA applauds the President for continuing to make tough decisions to invest in America’s future.”
