Response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address

Tonight, President Obama has tried to convince the American people that the state of our union requires additional investement to compete in the global economy.
One only needs to look at the President’s previous attempt at “investing,” the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, to see his dismal track record on spending borrowed dollars to try to revive the American economy. Increased federal spending only increases federal debt, and does nothing to decrease the number of Americans still looking for work. For two years, Obama has said his focus would be on jobs; for two years, his records indicates a focus on everything but.
Republicans in Congress were elected to stop the blank checks; to rein in a government that believes it can operate in ways no household or business in America can operate. The only way for our country to remain the world’s dominant economic force is to remove barriers to job creation and to make the tough choices regarding entitlements and wasteful government programs to put us on a path towards fiscal responsibility. Once President Obama embraces these goals, we will be able to see our union grow stronger.
