President Obama’s Final State Of The Union, More Of The Same

January 13, 2016
Press Release

WASHINGTON− Tonight, President Obama delivered his final State of the Union.  After attending his speech Congressman Fleischmann released the following statement.

“Tonight I entered the House Chamber hopeful that we would hear a real plan from the President on how we are going to protect our nation from the growing terrorist threat and finally jumpstart our stalled economy,” said Fleischmann.  “Instead the President used the opportunity to rationalize his failed economic and foreign policies and to divert attention away from the real issues facing our nation. It was made abundantly clear that the President’s primary objective in his final year in office will be defending his legacy.  That legacy is a top-down, big-government approach that has given us the worst economic recovery in American history and stagnating middle class wages.  The House is providing a different path, one that is driven from the bottom-up and will provide real opportunity and solutions by empowering the American people.”
