— President Obama
In 2013, our economy grew, and our deficit shrunk. For the first time in almost two decades, we said that we’re producing more oil at home than we buy from the rest of the world. We honored our heroes. We bounced back from national tragedies and natural disasters. We strengthened our relationships with allies around the world and took action to promote the American dream at home. Take a look at the 2013 year in review.

Barack Obama Full Speech - 60th Anniversary Of Korean War Armistice - July 27, 2013
Congress should focus on creating jobs, not cutting vital services for middle-class families.
my thoughts exactly, buzzfeed
President Obama is urging Congress to avoid self-imposed, brutal spending cuts before March 1st and focus on making America a magnet for good, middle-class jobs.
