U.S. Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) released the following statement following President Obama's State of the Union speech on Tuesday:

"I was hoping that President Obama might be singing a different tune for the first State of the Union speech in his second term, but it was same song, different verse. I was hoping to hear a President committed to getting our fiscal house in order. All I heard was more big government programs, more out-of-control federal spending and no commitment to paying down our national debt.
