Latham Responds to President's State of the Union


Location: Washington, DC

Iowa Congressman Tom Latham released the following statement this evening on the President's 2013 State of the Union address before Congress:

"As the economy has gone almost 50 months with unemployment at or above 7.8 percent, shrunk 0.1 percent in the last quarter and continued to suffer the plague of a runaway $16 trillion debt, Official Washington's focus must remain on promoting job growth and fiscal responsibility. It would betray our nation's exceptional tradition to accept grim economic news and unrestrained spending as just part of life in the new America.

"Iowans by their nature are humble and accountable, and they exercise commonsense judgment in their daily lives. I will continue to bring these values to my service in Congress and stand ready to work with any of my colleagues, regardless of party affiliation, to put people before politics and progress before partisanship to solve the urgent problems facing our country today."
