President Obama's State of the Union Address

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham today released the following statement on President Obama's State of the Union address:

"I disagree with President Obama, Washington's problem is not that there is too little revenue. Washington's problem is that it spends too much. Tonight was more about political theater than problem solving. I had hoped he would leave the class warfare rhetoric behind and try to bring us all together, but his speech was more about highlighting our differences than what we have in common. I was very disappointed with his speech.

"The President missed an opportunity to advocate for any of the entitlement reform proposals offered by the bipartisan Bowles-Simpson Commission; support restructuring our tax code to make us more competitive; or pay down the national debt.

"We desperately need to create jobs in America and I believe the best way to do that is to tax less, regulate less, and free up the private sector."
