Washington D.C., January 21, 2015—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 by Senator Joni Ernst, the difference could not be more pronounced.
Once again, the President’s Address was long on talk and short on substance. If the President was truly interested in a better America, he need look no further than Congress to see what an agenda for the American people looks like.
House Republicans have approved the Keystone Pipeline and passed legislation to ease the burdens Dodd-Frank and the Affordable Care Act place on American workers.Tomorrow, we’re going to streamline the permitting process for gas pipelines and put America at the top of the world in energy production.
I am hopeful 2015 can be a productive year with meaningful change for Americans, but the chances of that are yet to be seen from the White House. Welcome to work, Mr. President, but you’re already two weeks behind."
