U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address.
“Tonight’s State of the Union address was another opportunity for the President to demonstrate leadership and focus on bipartisan solutions that unite our government rather than divide us. Unfortunately, that is not what we heard tonight.
“The President continues to put forth ideas without a plan or the support of Congress to execute them. I support many of the same goals discussed in tonight’s speech like growing the economy, increasing opportunities for the middle class, investing in transportation and improving technical education but differ on how we accomplish these goals.
“If the President is willing to set politics aside and work with us, we have an opportunity to end the gridlock and make Washington work for the American people.”
