Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.
"The President has an obligation to provide the American people with his plans to solve the problems we face as a country. Unfortunately, President Obama's actions have rarely lived up to his lofty rhetoric.
"We do not have a revenue problem; Washington has a spending problem. For five years President Obama has promised cuts, but has failed to deliver when it comes to specifics about how he will work with Congress to reduce the deficits that are crushing hard-working taxpayers.
"Actions speak louder than words and it is my hope that in 2013 the President will finally come to the table and work with us on serious solutions to solve the debt crisis and get our nation's economy back on track. A good first step would be for the President to submit a sensible budget that American families can support."
