TRANSCRIPT:

It was a unique opportunity where the entire conference got to convey what they're listening to across America. The President laid out some debt discussion, but from the Conference he heard a about jobs. [President Obama] heard about unshackling the burden of regulation on small business, to get them working again from Wisconsin to West Virginia to Members across the way. What I heard from this President, is that he wanted to sit down and find real cuts now. He said there needed to be entitlement reform, and we will work with him towards those ends in a direction where we create new jobs, put us on a new path to a balanced budget and pay down the debt as well.
