Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ) released the following statement Tuesday after President Obama's State of the Union Address:
"At certain parts of his speech tonight, President Obama struck the right tone, especially regarding the need for Republicans and Democrats to work together on getting our economy going again. What we need now is action. Words alone do not get Americans back to work or restore fiscal sanity in Washington. President Obama's proposal to freeze domestic spending for the next five years doesn't go nearly far enough. We need to make much deeper cuts and to enact pro-growth economic policies that will unleash the ingenuity of the private sector, rather than counting on well-delivered speeches and symbolic hires to get the job done. President Obama is asking Republicans in Congress to accept more spending in return for cuts to the federal budget. That's a choice we will not make."
