Van Hollen Statement on State of the Union
Jan 25, 2011 -
Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen issued the following statement on President Obama’s State of the Union Address:
“Tonight, President Obama laid out a clear plan of investing in job creation and national priorities, as well as getting America back on a path to fiscal sustainability. It will not be easy, but we have already brought our country back from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. I am confident we can continue to grow our economy, create jobs, and move America forward.
“House Democrats remain committed to putting people back to work and getting our fiscal house in order. When Republicans put forward ideas that help create jobs, reduce the deficit, and strengthen the middle class, they will find willing partners – but when they try to turn back the clock and put special interests back in charge, they will find a vocal opposition.
“As the President said tonight, we must all move forward together because the challenges we face are bigger than party or politics – there is simply too much at stake.”
