Obama Pledges To Keep Working For Economic Security

On his weekly address for the Labor Day weekend, President Obama promises to “keep working day-by-day to restore opportunity, economic security, and that basic American Dream for our families and future generations.” He points out achievements including passing a tax cut for 95 percent of all Americans and preventing insurance companies from bankrupting people from failing to cover medical expenses. He concluded by saying:

This Labor Day, we are reminded that we didn’t become the most prosperous country in the world by rewarding greed and recklessness.  We did it by rewarding hard work and responsibility.  We did it by recognizing that we rise or we fall together as one nation – one people – all of us vested in one another.  That is how we have succeeded in the past. And that is how we will not only rebuild this economy, but rebuild it stronger than ever before.
