Billy Long responds to State of the Union
U.S. Rep. Billy Long issued the following statement on the president's State of the Union address:
"The American people sent a strong message to Washington in November that they wanted change. Since then President Obama by his actions and words has doubled down on the policies and proposals that the American people rejected. The new majority in Congress wants to empower the American people as we work for an efficient, effective and accountable government. Hard-working taxpayers want economic growth, security and opportunity that a healthy economy would provide. The president should direct his efforts in those areas as opposed to constantly trying to divide us along class and income lines."
