On Saturday, President Obama’s first weekly address of 2011 was presented. During his three-minute speech, the president discussed the importance of continual support for the recovering economy, creating new jobs and ensuring that the middle class doesn’t continue to feel the squeeze. The decisions that are made this year will affect the nation for the decades to come and so these decisions need to be the right ones.

“Now it’s our turn to think about the future.  In a few days, a new Congress will form, with one house controlled by Democrats, and one house controlled by Republicans – who now have a shared responsibility to move this country forward.  And here’s what I want you to know: I’m willing to work with anyone of either party who’s got a good idea and the commitment to see it through.  And we should all expect you to hold us accountable for our progress or our failure to deliver” Source: The White House
