WASHINGTON, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) released the following statement on the President's State of the Union address:

I applaud the President's plan to move America forward by creating more jobs, reducing the growing deficit, holding our financial institutions accountable and addressing the needs of the middle class.

"While as a nation we have a long way to go, our financial footing is much firmer than it was a year ago.  I support the President in his efforts to create a long term financial strategy for our nation that calls for clean energy jobs, health insurance reform, and accountability for the big banks that will guard against another economic collapse.

"I pledge to continue working with the President to deliver positive results for all Americans especially those struggling to find work, afford healthcare and hold on to their homes."
