Pelosi Statement Following President Obama’s Press Conference

San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement following President Obama’s press conference:

“Bravo!  This is the fight House Democrats have been making for the last six months under the Republican Majority as they move to end Medicare and continue tax breaks for Big Oil.

“The President has spoken out and there will be a clearer understanding of what the choices are for the American people.

“We join the President in what he has long called for: a balanced, bipartisan package that creates jobs, protects Medicare, and respects the retirement of our seniors and the education of our children.”
