Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) released the following statement in response to the State of the Union Address delivered by President Barack Obama before a joint session of Congress this evening:
"In the words of Winston Churchill, "America will always do the right thing, but only after exhausting all other options.' After two years of big government and big spending policies, we have officially exhausted the other options. It's time to get the government out of the way and to remove the impediment to growth and job creation.
"While I am encouraged by the tone of tonight's speech, it must be followed with real action to cut the budget and rein in government. We cannot afford to play a game of semantics - spending by any other name increases debt and further borrows on the backs of our children."
