Congressman Palmer released the following statement after President Trump's State of the Union Address.
"After listening to President Trump's State of the Union Address, we can agree as individuals and as a country we are better off now than before he was elected," said Palmer. "The American people know they are better off today than they were a year ago and they are much more optimistic about the future.
"Businesses are expanding, giving bonuses, and increasing their employees pay. New businesses are starting up and old businesses that left the country are coming back. I believe most Americans are not only not buying the delusional rhetoric coming from the Democrats that getting rid of unnecessary regulations will destroy the country or that reforming our tax code and cutting taxes will result in a national catastrophe or that securing our borders and implementing sensible immigration reform is bad for the country, but they are tired of it.
"President Trump ran on promises to make America more prosperous and more secure, and, in his first year in office, President Trump has begun to deliver on those promises. As President Trump made clear tonight, he and the Republican majorities in the House and Senate are just getting started."
