GOP Weekly Address: President Needs to 'Wake Up to Reality'

United States Congress(WASHINGTON) -- Delivering the GOP weekly address, New York Congressman Michael Grimm highlighted the Republican plan to give job creators more opportunities.

"Republicans are focused on implementing a strong road map for job creation that reduces burdensome regulations, calls for a simpler and fairer tax code and expands American energy production," Grimm says.

"For the sake of our economy, I'm urging the President to wake up to reality, abandon his failed policies and join Republicans in the hard work needed to turn our country around and create jobs," he added.

Grimm also says that both parties need to put politics aside to reach an agreement.

"Calling on both parties to come together and send a balanced budget amendment to the states, would be a good start. We need less politics and more common sense if we are going to save our country from financial ruin and restore a thriving economy for our children and grandchildren."
