My Statement on the President’s State of the Union Address

“This evening the President rightly recognized the American people’s call for both parties to work together. I was encouraged to hear of his support to keep our country competitive in research and technology in the innovative spirit of the Wright brothers. At Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, they are leading the way in this area, and the creation of similar economic engines throughout Ohio and our country are much needed. In addition, his call for a simplified tax code is long overdue and something which can be achieved through work on both sides of the aisle.

“It’s also clear that freezing government spending at current levels as the president has proposed, will not slow the runaway deficits which have characterized the past two years of this administration. In order to create jobs, jumpstart the economy and continue the tradition of American entrepreneurial success, we must cut government spending and tackle our mounting debt. This is the true challenge of our generation. It is time to have an honest discussion about the spending priorities in this country. We heard this from the American people this fall, and it is time to act.”
