Bedford, NH- Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster addressed the fiscal challenges facing our nation at the New England Council’s Congressional roundtable breakfast with local business leaders.
During her speech the Congresswoman spoke of the need for both common sense and compromise in Washington between Republicans and Democrats so bipartisan solutions may be discovered to help combat the nation’s fiscal challenges.
“Here’s my bottom line. Yes Republicans and Democrats have real difference. Yes we will disagree on some issues”, Kuster told the crowd. “But let’s work together on the things we do agree on. Let’s do our part to restore people’s faith that Congress can still do the right thing. Let’s start solving problems instead of creating new ones”.
In her speech Kuster went on to praise her fellow freshman colleagues on both sides of the aisle for their part in finding a common ground, mentioning that in order to address the fiscal challenges facing the nation will require a compromise from both parties.
“None of us expects to agree on everything, we’re not naïve .We’re not blind to our differences .But we’re also not willing to let the things we disagree on prevent us from making progress on the things we do agree on.”
In February Kuster was a driving force behind the establishment of the United Solutions Caucus, a new bipartisan group made up of both freshman Democrats and Republicans focused on fixing the nation’s fiscal challenges in a common sense, bipartisan manner.
