MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Republican U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions says he supports the Obama administration's focus on Afghanistan and lowering U.S. troop levels in Iraq.
The Mobile lawmaker made the comments Friday to the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce.
Sessions told the group America will "muddle through" the current economic downturn.
He was critical of the economic stimulus plan because he believes it would grow the national deficit which has surged to $1.8 trillion.
Sessions said the President's budget is a "bit rosy" as it pertains to the gross national product and his prediction that unemployment will decline.
