Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) released the following statement in response to tonight's the State of the Union Address:

"Tackling the challenges facing our country will take more than words. Therefore, the real test is not what was said tonight but how we move forward and what can be accomplished in the days ahead.

"I appreciate the President outlining his agenda. Some of the items laid out have already been passed by the House and await Senate action. Others merit review and consideration.

"Where we can find common ground, I look forward to working with the President. Where he clings to failed policies or to politics of division, I will continue to advance alternatives that will help restore the American dream."
