Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo issued a statement following President Barack Obama's address to a joint session of Congress. During his address, the President outlined the American Jobs Act, which aims to help reduce unemployment, improve national infrastructure, without adding to the federal deficit.

"Tonight, President Obama presented Congress with a plan that will help rebuild the   US economy by getting Americans back to work," Bordallo wrote. "The President highlighted the need to continue to invest in infrastructure improvements throughout the country, and I will work with my colleagues in Congress to make sure that Guam and the other territories benefit from infrastructure programs included in this plan. The President's speech reminds us that Congress must re-focus its priorities on the immediate need of getting people back to work. 

"Reducing unemployment is a critical component of solving our nation's long-term debt and deficit issues.  I support the President's call for a jobs program that will reduce unemployment and invest in rebuilding our nation's infrastructure system."
