Congressman Ed Perlmutter continued to talk about how the country needs to strive to turn jobs around and bring more revenue into the state. Providing affordable homes for elderly and for veterans is crucial to the dignity of the state. With the job market being the lowest it has ever been, accomplishing this is difficult but the state needs to strive for it. If we accomplish these goals it will provide a safety net for our economy and for our lives. The concept that Congressman Perlmutter was, "WITT" meaning "we are in this together." Communal efforts to turning the state and the country around is a joint objective. On a smaller scale and individual efforts need to be taken in order to accomplish larger scale goals.
