U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) tonight released the following statement on President Obama's State of the Union address:
"President Obama tonight laid out a positive vision for where our country is headed, powered by an economy built to work for all Americans. I share President Obama's belief that if you work hard and play by the rules in this country, you deserve a real shot at economic fairness. I look forward to working with him this year to restore the economic fairness we seem to have lost. President Obama's blueprint touches all the right areas if you're trying to build an economy that works for everyone. For the first time in 15 years, America's manufacturing sector is growing again. We need to invest in that momentum, grow domestic and clean energy production, and enhance the skills of American workers. Importantly, we have to do it in a bipartisan way that is economically fair to all Americans."
More thorough analyses of specific elements of President Obama's Blueprint for An America Built to Last will be posted to our blog on Wednesday. http://coons.senate.gov/blog
