Westerman on Obama’s Last SOTU: “The President Has Stopped Trying”

January 12, 2016
Press Release


WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (Jan. 12) in response to President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union address:

“President Obama's message is simple - he gives up,” Westerman said. “As evidenced by his recent executive orders on gun control, the president has stopped trying to work with Congress to pass meaningful legislation in a bi-partisan manner. He refuses to listen to the will of the people. The president gave us a laundry list of ways he's bypassed the people's House to create laws with no debate and no compromise. As Congress continues to find ways to protect our citizens, improve economic opportunity, balance the budget, and improve access to quality healthcare, President Obama vows to obstruct all of it. Despite President Obama's efforts to ignore the country's problems, this year Congress will offer solutions to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, get our national debt under control, and fight poverty.”
