Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid's letter to Barack Obama

February 12, 2009

President Barack Obama
The White House
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President:

We greatly appreciate your support for the legislation we have sent you to guarantee fair pay for women and expanded health care for children, and for your leadership as we work to finalize an economic recovery bill, which we will send you shortly.

This Congress and your Administration have truly hit the ground running, but our hard work has just begun. We would like to invite you to address a Joint Session of the Congress on Tuesday, February 24 to share your vision for addressing the many critical challenges our country faces at home and abroad.

Thank you for considering this invitation to speak to the Congress and the nation. We look forward to your reply.

Sincerely,

NANCY PELOSI
Speaker of the House

HARRY REID
Majority Leader of the Senate
