Jon Corzine helped craft the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. When Barack Obama and I were sitting at a desk in a high rise in Chicago beginning to plan to get this economy out of a ditch the first guy I called was Jon Corzine. Not a joke, not a joke he is the smartest guy I know on finance and the economy. He was pushin when I was campaignin about the need for us to save or create jobs. And so if you need any evidence look at the recovery efforts of NJ and you can mirror them. They fall right on top of what we're doin so thank you Jon, thank you.
