Good morning and welcome to you, Chairman Greenspan. Today our economy is in good condition and that is, in part, due to your deft handling of monetary policy. We are enjoying a combination of economic factors that many think are incompatible- low inflation and low unemployment. I will be interested to hear from the Chairman as to what conditions have made this possible And what we, as legislators, can do to help extend the length of the expansion.
Congress is currently engaged in a debate on tax and spending reconciliation bills. While no one is going to be completely satisfied with the end product, I believe we are moving in the right direction--- less taxes and less spending. Just as the markets will micro-analyze every word the chairman utters today, the markets will also react to our commitment to balancing the budget. This is a goal I hope we all committed to.
I look forward to hearing Chairman Greenspan's testimony.
