Metals Service Center Institute Applauds President’s Address to Congress

Metals Service Center Institute Applauds President’s Address to Congress

Rolling Meadows, Ill., March 1, 2017— M. Robert Weidner, III, president and CEO of the Metals Service Center Institute (MSCI), issued the following statement after President Donald Trump’s address to a joint session of the 115th Congress:

“Last night regarding the Affordable Care Act, President Trump said ‘action is not a choice, it is a necessity.’ That phrase shouldn’t apply only to health care—it must apply to all major challenges facing federal lawmakers. The president outlined an impressive agenda and extended a hand to Democrats, asking them to come to the table to collaborate on good policy. He promised a ‘renewal of the American spirit’ and a resurgence in economic growth, and I believe that if he works with Congress to act on his agenda of infrastructure and energy investment, education and comprehensive tax reform, and stronger trade enforcement, we can achieve that.”
