We Must Pass This Spending Plan
It's great to be here with so many friends. I'm glad to see the House Democratic Caucus is getting by just fine without my chief of staff. I want to thank John Larson for inviting me here tonight.
This is John's first conference as chairman of the Democratic Caucus, so were both new at this.
I want to acknowledge the great Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, who has proven to be an extraordinary leader for the American people. I want to thank Nancy, Steny Hoy-er, Jim Clyburn and the entire caucus for your hard work in passing an economic recovery plan that is so desperately needed for our country.
