MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The economy is better but we still have a ways to go.

That's the word from Dr. David Bronner, chief executive officer of the Retirement Systems of Alabama.

Bronner, who invests millions of dollars for the state, was the guest speaker at Auburn Montgomery's Business Breakfast.

He said he remains very worried about the nation's unemployment rate. He also stated that the key to the U.S. rebounding is getting both political parties in Washington on board.

"I think the problem to be honest with you is out of Washington. Until the Democrats and Republicans stop throwing the trash can against each other...It doesn't do any good for the American population," said Dr. Bronner.

The Business Breakfast Series is hosted by the AUM Division of Continuing Education. The series brings the business and education communities together to hear topics on state, local, and national issues.
