Wyden Statement on The President’s American Jobs Act

Washington, D.C.U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) issued the following statement in response to the President’s American Jobs Act:

“As we heard from the President tonight, there is no silver bullet for economic recovery. It is a fight to be fought on several fronts and to be successful we must make strides toward putting Americans back to work rebuilding crumbling transportation infrastructure, improving our manufacturing by getting tough on trade cheats and making the tax code simpler and fairer for American businesses and families. I believe that this bill is a step toward those goals and I look forward to working with the President and my Congressional colleagues to improve on it.”
