Middle Class Economics February 24, 2015
Rick Nolan, D-MN
"It was really quite an eye-opening experience to see how the rest of the world does business, to get a better feel and understanding for the importance of agriculture and a better feel and understanding of agriculture as it relates to feeding a hungry world, but infrastructure and its importance to building the middle class here in the country, to laying the foundation for job growth and economic growth. And to come back here again after those years in business and in community service, I have got to be frank with you; I feel much better prepared today than I ever was to serve my district and to serve my Nation, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to be here."
