Open for Questions: The State of the Union and the Economy
I wrote Mr. Keller prior to his appearance and he was glad to have the opportunity to represent Examiner.com and Examiner's readers at the question and answer forum. I mentioned to Mr. Keller that many 99ers would appreciate having their issue raised to Mr. Goolsbee and Mr. Keller didn't disappoint. He mentioned that 75% of Examiners' responses were concerned about long-term unemployment.
From the White House:
Austan Goolsbee, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, answers questions about the economics issues the President discussed in his State of the Union Address in a roundtable discussion.
Examiner.com's Jay Keller presented a question on behalf of the 99ers. Fast forward to 06:58 for the question and Goolsbee's reply.
