Sessions Supports Troop Withdrawal Pace

Montgomery, Alabama – Republican U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions says he supports the Obama administration's focus on Afghanistan and lowering U.S. troop levels in Iraq.

Sessions, who serves on the Senate Armed Forces Committee, has just returned from a trip to the Middle East.

Sessions says America will "muddle through" the
current economic downturn.
He was critical of the economic stimulus plan because he
believes it would grow the national deficit which has surged to
$1.8 trillion.

Sessions said the President's budget is a "bit rosy" as it
pertains to the gross national product and the President's prediction that
unemployment will decline.
