Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ-03) released the following statement Thursday after President Obama's address before a joint session of Congress:
"Tonight, the American public wanted to hear President Obama's plan to get our economy growing again. Unfortunately, the President chose to give a campaign speech filled with straw men, false choices and recycled ideas. The ideas proposed by the President mirror the same failed policies that inhibit economic growth. Billions more in wasteful spending is not going to revive this economy. House Republicans are willing and ready to work with the Administration, but they must understand that economic growth comes from economic freedom."
