Jan.28, 2008: Rep.Tim Ryan Statement on the President’s State of the Union Speech
Washington D.C. – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-17) released this statement as a reaction to the President’s State of the Union address this evening.
“As expected, the President didn’t say anything new and didn’t offer any constructive solutions. The President should be focused much more on domestic programs which will actually help the American middle class rather than trying to make his tax cuts to the richest 1% permanent. If he’s really concerned with empowering the American people, then he’d be protecting them from losing their homes in this mortgage crisis, losing their jobs to workers abroad and would sign the bi-partisan S-CHIP legislation which would cover 10 million children with healthcare.”
