Congresswoman Jenkins is Hopeful to Hear President's Deficit Plans

Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins says she is hopeful to hear President Barack Obama's plan to reduce the deficit.

In a statement released Monday, Jenkins says:

"Out-of-control government spending in Washington got us into the financial mess we're in right now, and I am glad President Obama recognizes that reducing the deficit is critical to growing out economy. I hope this plan is responsible and focuses on reducing spending on wasteful or duplicative government programs."
