Press Release
"Today's announcement by the Federal Reserve to reduce interest rates underscores the economic insecurity that middle-class Americans have long been feeling. A weakening economy, record home foreclosures, record energy prices, and meager job creation are not just numbers, but rather serious challenges for working families across the country. I hope that the action taken today by the Fed will bring some relief to the middle-class."

Press Release
"'The President's war in Iraq has dangerously overstretched our military, left America less protected against terrorism, and more vulnerable as other global threats emerge - all at the cost of nearly $1 trillion to the taxpayers.

Press Release
"'The American people reject the President's call for an 'enduring relationship' with Iraq that is based on leaving our troops in the middle of a deadly civil war for at least 10 years. The President failed to answer how maintaining 130,000 soldiers in Iraq would strengthen our military, make us safer, or how he would pay for its additional $700 billion cost."
