Barack Obama on Economy

Sen. Barack Obama talks about the economy with labor leaders on June 19, 2008 in Washington, DC.

Today, in a meeting with the nation's Democratic governors, Barack said:

You deserve and you need a partner in the White House and a president who understands our prosperity doesn't come from Wall Street or Washington. We should be investing in the skills, the human capital, the education and well-being of your constituents.

You've gotta solve problems; ultimately the buck stops with you. You've gotta balance your budget. If you've got a badly drafted piece of legislation, you're the ones who have to live with it and as a consequence you end up spending less time posturing and trying to score ideological points and more time trying to govern. We need that same approach in Washington.
