President Obama delivered the annual State of the Union Address tonight. U.S. Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) responds to the President's Address:
"I am glad the President has embraced the Republican principles of lowering the corporate tax rate and addressing tort reform. I hope we can work together in a bi-partisan manner on these two issues as they will be vital in jump starting the economy.
Rep. Scott goes on to say, "I appreciate that the President acknowledged in his speech tonight that we need to address the national debt, which has increased $5.3 trillion since Democrats took control in 2007. We will know when the President delivers his budget proposal to Congress if he is serious about reducing the level of the national debt or if his comments tonight were just words."
