Rep. Doggett Responds to State of the Union Address


Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Congressman Lloyd Doggett, a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, issued the following statement in response to President Obama's State of the Union Address:
"Deficit reduction--definitely, but cuts alone cannot grow America. From pre-K to post-grad, we must maintain our commitment to encouraging individual opportunity and strengthening the competitiveness of our workforce. Reforming immigration now for tax-paying, law-abiding immigrants will strengthen our economy. Making the DREAM Act a reality for promising young immigrants is only one part of what we need to accomplish.

"Corporations contributed no new revenues in the recent fiscal cliff deal. They ought to help a little. Closing corporate loopholes and limiting offshore tax gimmicks can provide revenue needed for vital investments and a balanced budgetary approach."
