image(WASHINGTON, DC) – Iowa Congressman Tom Latham released the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress this evening:

"There is one thing that all Americans can agree upon tonight; that too many of our neighbors continue to struggle with unemployment, grim economic news, and anxiety about the future due to the worst economic downturn in a generation."

"The situation is dire, and the American people rightfully expect leaders in Washington to put people before politics and progress before partisanship to change the way Washington works and the work that Washington does to restore the confidence in the American Dream, the outlook on jobs and in our economy."

"The simple truth is that we must do better as a Congress and as a government to work together to find real solutions to these problems.  Our nation’s history has proven time and again that when Americans set aside our partisan differences and work together towards common sense solutions we can achieve great things. I am, as I have always been during my service to Iowans, committed and ready to work with anyone, regardless of political affiliation, who is willing to join me to move our country forward and once again give the American people the peace of mind of long-term economic security."
