Graham Statement on President Obama’s Address to the Nation

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on President Obama’s address to the nation.

“President Obama is right when he says he has inherited very difficult challenges – two wars and an ailing economy.  I will do all I can to help him secure the peace and bring about economic recovery.

“I know there will be times when we disagree, like we did on the stimulus package.  I thought it was too big and unfocused.  It created more government than it did jobs.

“I hope we can find common ground on housing and helping our banks survive without throwing good money after bad.  I will do everything I can to meet the President in the middle and I hope he will respond in kind.”
