Simpson Responds to the State of the Union

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson issued the following statement after President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech tonight.

"My disappointment in President Obama isn't necessarily with his words, it is with his actions. As he has done before, he spoke tonight about reforming our tax code and entitlement programs. Yet when his own deficit reduction commission issued its recommendations, he ran away from them. He talked once again tonight about embracing bi-partisan change, yet he rejected the bi-partisan budget solutions Speaker Boehner put before him last year. He talked once again tonight about growing our economy, but is simultaneously threatening to circumvent the role of Congress in the issuance of new regulations. President Obama gives a good speech, but his actions rarely, if ever, match his words."
