Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Urbana) issued the following statement in response to President Obama's State of the Union Address:
"The President missed a great opportunity tonight to put the campaign rhetoric aside and commit to supporting common sense solutions that will help get our economy back on track. The American people want us to work on simplifying the tax code, producing more American energy, and stopping the onslaught of new federal regulations that are creating uncertainty and economic stagnation."
"Instead, President Obama is pledging to double-down on his failed plan of more government, more job-killing regulations, more borrowing, more debt, and higher taxes."
"There are almost 30 jobs bills, passed by the House and waiting for action in the Senate. The President would do better to urge his former Senate colleagues to debate and vote on some of our jobs bills, which will jumpstart our economy."
