Palazzo Responds to State of the Union

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) released the following statement following President Obama’s State of the Union address tonight:

“We can always count on this president to deliver a well-executed speech full of rhetoric. What we can’t count on, is his ability to follow through and provide real solutions for the American people. What I heard tonight was more of the same. Six years in and the president still doesn’t get it.

It’s time for the political games to stop and our nation’s top priorities to be taken seriously. We need to lighten the load on hard-working Americans, not further burden them with MORE taxes. We need to enforce the laws on the books and secure our borders, not offer hand-outs to individuals who are in our country illegally. When is this president going to stand up for the American people for a change? His proposals are going nowhere in Congress until he starts putting Americans and America first.”
