Hi, everybody. Our top priority as a nation, and my top priority as President, must be doing everything we can to reignite the engine of America’s growth: a rising, thriving middle class. That’s our North Star. That must drive every decision we make.
Now, yesterday, we learned that our businesses created 95,000 new jobs last month. That’s about 500,000 new jobs this year, and nearly 6.5 million new jobs over the past three years.
But we’ve got more work to do to get the economy growing faster, so that everybody who wants a job can find one. And that means we need fewer self-inflicted wounds from Washington, like the across-the-board spending cuts that are already hurting many communities – cuts that economists predict will cost our economy hundreds of thousands of jobs this year.
If we want to keep rebuilding this economy on a stronger, sturdier foundation for growth – growth that creates good, middle-class jobs – we need to make smarter choices.

Schuette grandstands for Grand Jury investigation of tainted steroid needles, continues to ignore Michigan’s drug immunity law he orchestrated
LANSING – Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer (D-East Lansing) took Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to task today for his call for a Grand Jury investigation of the medical suppliers that shipped tainted steroid injections that harmed countless Michigan citizens. Whitmer did not discredit the issue itself, but did take offense at the Attorney General’s hypocritical outrage and fight for justice in the context of Michigan’s one-in-the-nation drug immunity law that prevents patients and their families from seeking justice for faulty prescription drugs.
