If we take the smart steps right now to create lasting economic growth; if we look beyond our own short-term self-interests to the wider set of obligations that we have to each other; if we band together with resolve and clear purpose to take care of business right here and now, we succeed. Thatâ€™s when we prosper. Thatâ€™s when the United States of America cannot be stopped.
And seeing all of you here tonight, I believe that the future is going to be very bright for all of us. So I thank you. I hope you’re ready to continue rolling up your sleeves. Our work is not yet done, it’s not yet time to celebrate. But we’re going to get it done — I’m absolutely confident, thanks to you. (Applause.)
