Obama and Budget Address
|View from the 89th District's House Seat (Rep. Stewart)|
It was a very interesting day in the Illinois Legislature when President Barack Obama came to Springfield and addressed a joint session of the Illinois House and Senate. It is historical in the sense that a sitting President addressed the General Assembly in Illinois or any other state for that matter. Regardless of your politics, party, ideology or whether or not you support his agenda his remarks were insightful as to what is going on in Illinois and in this country for that matter.
