Robert Graham, Reps. Schweikert, Gosar react to SOTU
Washington, D.C. – Congressman David Schweikert (R-AZ) made the following statement Tuesday after attending President Obama’s State of the Union Address:
“It is clear the president has no interest in bipartisanship.
Tonight, we saw President Obama finish the same standard left-winged speech he started giving at the inauguration.
We did not see a leader willing to work together to solve our economic crisis – we saw wedge politics at its best.
This Administration’s policies are creating poverty, dependency on government, high unemployment, and exploding debt and energy costs.
The president reaffirmed his misguided belief that more government is the solution to everything. Unfortunately, it is a policy that will lead to more spending and more debt that American taxpayers cannot afford.
Instead of pushing for more government, the president should focus on how we can reduce the size and cost of a federal government that continues to stifle the economic growth we need to ensure our nation’s prosperity.”
Rep. Paul Gosar Responds To State of The Union
‘Talk is cheap. Actions speak’
Washington, D.C. - , U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S (R – AZ) issued the following response to the President’s State of the Union address.
“Talk is cheap and actions speak. While the President gave a well-scripted speech this evening he continues to ignore the reality of our state of the union. What our nation needs is less rhetoric from the president.”
What the American people need and deserve is a budget, a plan to end deficit spending and an honest discussion about the difficult issues we face on immigration, crime prevention and energy.”
When President Obama and Senate Democrats are ready to present a pathway to a balanced budget and tackle our crushing debt, then we can discuss the merits of the President’s proposed initiatives and big-government ‘investments’.”
