Congressman Tom Reed’s Response To the President’s State of the Union Speech

January 12, 2016

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Tom Reed Issued the following statement after the President issued his final State of the Union address:

“The President has outlined the same themes for the last eight years, but time after time, he has failed to back up his rhetoric with substance or any positive policy changes. Regardless of the election cycle, America still faces real challenges including threats from those who would seek to destroy our way of life and an economy that remains fragile for so many right here in Upstate New York. We care about making sure that we protect America and that our communities have a fair chance for quality, family-sustaining jobs. That is why we remain committed to fighting for policies that keep us safe from terror and policies that will help create jobs in our region for generations to come. Rather than just talk, we must come together and find the solutions and the way toward a more secure future of opportunity for all Americans.”
