|(NY Times by Doug Mills)|
Briefly. In an address before a joint session of Congress, President Barack Obama hit all of the right points and forwarded a package of measures that can have a real impact on our sputtering economy. The president urged Congress 17 times to pass this bill. Meanwhile he stood behind the regulations that keep us safe and for the rights of workers. And yet, the message and the measures contained therein should appeal to anybody, regardless of party, who care and want to do something to counter this national crisis. We say YES. Congress must SAY YES. This is not "Yes, we can." It is YES, WE MUST!
