Rep. Wagner's Statement of the 2015 State of the Union Address
Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Ann Wagner released the following statement on President Obama's 2015 State of the Union Address:
“What we heard this evening were the same old, tired, Washington-based ideas for a country that is still struggling. This Administration would like the American people to believe that the economy is resurgent and strong. But the American people won’t again be fooled by this President and his proclamations that a top-down economy controlled from Washington is a better economy. We can do better; the American people deserve better.
“The New American Congress has a different idea for our country. We are pursuing policies that actually help hard-working taxpayers by providing them with greater opportunities for advancement, higher wages and a better way of life. While the White House is focused on political score-keeping and politics as usual, the New American Congress, led by unified Republican majorities, is placing America’s priorities first.
“In just three short weeks, the New American Congress has kept their promise to the American people by passing bills that will transform this Washington-based economy into a healthy system marked by a legacy of opportunity. I am hopeful that, when push comes to shove, President Obama will put down his veto pen and work with this Congress, rather than pursue job creation artificially from Washington.”
