President Addresses Hispanic Congressional Caucus Institute

The President recognized that there is disagreement over NAFTA, and that change is never easy, but then stated "I believe that it is in the interest of this country ... not to turn away from the change but to embrace it -- not because it will be easy, not because nobody will be hurt, but because on balance we'll be better. ...we cannot make the perfect solution the enemy of the better solution. That is why I have embraced this course and why I hope others will as well."
