Senator Landrieu Says Financial Crisis Will Be Resolved

New Orleans, La. – Democratic U-S Senator Mary Landrieu was in New Orleans as the Dow Jones plunged more than 600 points. She remains confident that the economy will recover.

"We've stabilized the markets once already in this administration, when President Obama came and stepped in, when the Titanic was already sinking, and we can do this again."

Landrieu says she continues to back the president's plan to close tax loopholes, increase taxes in high-income brackets and make more cuts in spending.
