Press Release

Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement Tuesday in reaction to President Obama's State of the Union Address:

"As in most State of the Union speeches, there were some general statements that everyone will agree with, but for the most part it seemed to be more of a very partisan kickoff for the President's re-election campaign than anything else.

We saw an example of this last week when the President halted the Keystone Pipeline project, sending that oil to China just to appease a few environmental radicals rather than to consumers in the U.S.

This country could be booming beyond belief right now if we would allow more energy development and return to our free-market principles, but the President has chosen to take the country in the opposite direction."
