“Good morning, Mr. Plouffe took to the airwaves this morning indicating the President is going to be specific about his vision for how we get this economy revved up and going again and get people back to work. As the Speaker said, we’re looking for specifics that actually demonstrate a recognition that the policies this President and his Administration have been about haven’t worked.
“It’s time to try something new. What we would like to see, and I think what most of the American people would like, are bold ideas that focus on growing this economy and on helping small businesses start up and grow again. It has been too long that we have been mired in the spending, the incurrence of debt and the overreach by this government.
“We want to see a bold focus on growth in the private sector. That is consistent with the agenda we’re putting forward to make sure that we’re bold and we’re growth-oriented. We know the engine for jobs in this country is small businesses and that should be our focus once and for all.”
