WASHINGTON, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today on the Obama Administration's new proposals to help restore security to the middle class:

"Today's proposals by the Obama Administration to strengthen the middle class underscore the work of Congress to put the American dream within reach for millions of families.
