President's Weekly Address: Moving Forward

In the weekly address, President Barack Obama addressed the latest economic news and urged the passing of an America Recovery and Reinvestment Plan.

He also announced that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is preparing a new strategy for reviving our financial system -- which will not only ensure that CEOs aren't abusing taxpayer dollars, but also get credit flowing and lower mortgage costs.

Watch the address:

It will be interesting to see if the Republican Party continues to shake a fist at the extended hand of bipartisanship from President Obama. What do you think? Will the President get chance to sign a stimulus bill by mid-February?

I am praying that our leaders will understand that this economic turmoil we find ourselves in today must be dealt with and dealt with fast. There are real people behind the numbers. I invite you and other Villagers to read my commentary here and hopefully receive a blessing here.
