SEN. TOOMEY STATEMENT ON THE
STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement tonight on
the president’s State of the Union address:
"The president did suggest his willingness to work with Congress on a few
pro-economic growth policies, and I will always welcome working with the president
and anyone who wants to pursue ideas that will grow the economy and create jobs.
However, the majority of the president’s speech was just business as usual for this
administration and a retread of ideas that have already failed.
"Massive spending, tax increases, new additional regulations, and special-interest
giveaways – these are the things that have helped to get us to where we are now – a
weak economy without the kind of job growth that we need.
"What we need is for the president to unite Americans – not divide them, and to
focus on opportunities – a growing economy that will create the jobs that we need.
With unemployment at more than 8 percent and our nation’s debt at more than $15
trillion, we need to work together and pass meaningful solutions. I’m still going to
fight for those policies, and I hope the president will come along with us on at
least some of them."
