President Obama addresses “Deficit Reduction Negotiations”
In a speech that President Obama gave in a news conference at the East Room of the White House with the press, he shares his vision to address the “Deficit Reduction Negotiations” necessary to begin to solve the U.S. economical and financial woes.
The president shared about the progress on Trade Adjustment Assistance for American workers and pending free trade agreements that will support tens of thousands of American jobs.
Tough decisions and balanced solutions is the theme the president asked for not only for regular citizens but large corporations and executives to make the decision as leaders to accept their shared portion of taxes for the greater good.
Obama remarked “Take on the sacred cow and do tuff things”, that tax breaks for “Corporate Jets or Oil and Gas subsidies” needs to end, that congress needs to make a deal, especially republicans. That having the lowest tax breaks for those who can afford it is not the kind of sacrifice we can afford to continue and these giants need to offer to pay taxes is necessary to create the revenue to sustain our country. Otherwise the kinds of cuts that may need to take place will compromise America in areas like education, food safety, National Weather Service, and critical Medical research.
He then spoke about Libya and the concerns of Khadafy and the massacre of their people. No boots on the ground and NATO taking the load has protected thousand in that country, and the operation is limited in the time and the scope. The United States under the United Nations mandate has turn around the concern for Libyans to avoid more casualties of their citizens in that country with the limited operation against one of the worst tyrant’s in the World.
Sharing that this congress understands and acknowledges, Obama said, that we cannot discriminate against others including LGBT population. The federal government cannot poke its noise in State rulings and decisions on civil marriages. We all need to move in a direction of greater equality.
The overall package for job growth that is needed is looking at rebuilding our transportation infrastructures, tax codes need to be reviewed, looking at how to help small business, and trade deals that brings American goods overseas and to the hands of the global consumers.
