“Tonight, the President made it clear that we must do more – much more – to help working families.  We should increase the minimum wage.  We should invest in cutting-edge research.  We should work to provide a quality education for every child in America.  He also made it clear that if Republicans in Congress are not willing to cooperate, he will do what he can on his own.  As the President noted, we have made a great deal of progress in the last few years as we recover from the worst economic recession in decades.  But there is still more work to do.  I look forward to working with President Obama in the months to come to help advance this agenda.”
