Washington D.C., January 28, 2014—Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ) issued the following statement on the President’s State of the Union address Tuesday night:
“For those who watched the President’s speech and the Republican response, the difference could not be more stark.
The Republican message of optimism and opportunity contrasts with the President’s speech of recycled proposals from his previous years in office.
If the President is ready to accept responsibility for his policies that have led to stagnant economic growth over his 6 years in office, he needs to follow through this time and address the issue with more than just talk of job creation.
I am hopeful 2014 can be a productive year, but it will require President Obama to do something he has refused to do until now. And that is, reach out and work with Congress in good faith.”
