Blackburn Comments On State Of The Union Address

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) made the following statement in response to President Obama's first State of The Union Address.

"There is a piece of Tennessee wisdom that the President indicated tonight that he may have learned, "when you're in a hole, stop digging.' Unfortunately, our economic condition requires more than just a freeze on spending. In the last year, Washington tried to punish the economy into health. Punishing profit and risk has only dug the hole deeper. It is time to shift focus to incentives. By incentivizing individuals, we can expand the economy."

"We need to take immediate action to repair the damage. That means cutting federal spending, not just freezing it. Additionally, we must ease the federal burden on taxpayers to allow them to invest and save. We must ease regulations to allow small businesses and industry to grow and hire."
