Billy Long disappointed that State of the Union didn't address debt

Seventh District Congressman Billy Long is disappointed that President Obama did not mention the nation's debt during his State of the Union address Tuesday night. The following quote comes from the Springfield News-Leader:

“He didn’t mention anything about the debt, our terrible financial crisis,” Long, R-Springfield, said in an interview after Obama’s remarks. “He had a lot of grandiose ideas once again, with no explanation of how to pay for it.”
Long took a chance with that comment since he tweeted that he "dozed off" during the speech. Hopefully, he was joking about that.

The clapping and his own indigestion kept him awake.

What a joke.
