Buffalo, NY – Congressman Chris Lee, R-Clarence, will deliver the Republican's weekly address Saturday. It's the official response to President Obama's weekly remarks.

Lee was selected by party leaders in the wake of Mr. Obama's Buffalo appearance where he talked about the economy and job creation.

In his address this weekend, Lee will highlight his own private sector experience in manufacturing. Lee says the federal government should focus on incentives that will help small businesses create jobs.

"My background is not in professional politics but in the private sector, and manufacturing in particular," Lee said. "I believe we should be providing incentives for our manufacturers and small businesses to grow and create jobs rather than growth in the federal government."
