Tonight, the President called for a new era of responsibility, and
assured the country that even with its economy weakened and confidence
shaken, America will rebuild, recover and emerge stronger than before.
Many pieces of the plan should stick out to Latinos – including the
tax breaks that will support small business owners, college tuition
and first time home ownership.
We find ourselves at a unique moment in history – the challenges we
face are innumerable. But with those challenges come opportunities –
opportunities for Hispanics to step up and pitch in to get us out of
this mess. Explore the new jobs that are being created; learn all you
can about the economic recovery package, our national debt and
deficit; and challenge the President and Congress to remember the
unique needs of nuestras comunidades.
– Jorge Mursuli, President and CEO
