        New York State Senator Malcolm A. Smith Stands with the President for Aggressive Job Creation
     
    "I applaud President Barack Obama and support his vision to pass the American Jobs Act. In an economic recession of unparalleled proportions that has left millions of Americans unemployed, the President has provided decisive leadership, presenting a bold and innovative jobs plan that is poised to have an immediate impact. Combining a mix of tax cuts and strategic spending the President has put together a package that will supply a needed boost in hiring and give a jolt to the U.S. economy.
     
    I support the President's commitment to developing national infrastructure through a possible national infrastructure bank which can be used as a basis for state models that will in turn create thousands of jobs.
     
    It is imperative that the nation's job creation efforts be stimulated. The passage of this bill would not only directly impact my constituents in Southeast Queens but middle class Americans throughout the country. Job creation is essential to the advancement of our economy."
