In tonight's State of the Union, President Obama showed, once again, why he is the man to lead our country forward. But he can't do it without you. Sign our letter of support of President Obama's agenda.
In his speech, President Obama unveiled common-sense solutions to create jobs and build the middle class from the middle out, rather than from the top down. He said:
"It is our generation's task, then, to reignite the true engine of America's economic growth – a rising, thriving middle class.
It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country – the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or who you love.
It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few; that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation of ours."
I stand with President Obama, and Eric Garcetti, in believing that the number one priority for our leaders is creating jobs and growing the Middle Class.
