Bloomberg: No Chicken in Every Pot
Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Mayor Bloomberg says President Obama needs to give the public confidence and concrete solutions with his prime time speech to Congress tonight.
"I don't think they want to hear that there's going to be a chicken in every pot and there's no pain. People are smarter than that in this day and age and they know that. They want leadership and I happen to think that President Obama can provide that."
The president's address will be carried live on WNYC AM 820 - coverage begins at 9 pm.
