Congressman Andy Barr (R-KY) today made the following statement after the President’s State of the Union Address:

“What the country needs is a plan to defeat ISIS.  What we need is an agenda to grow the economy.  Instead, President Obama gave us a lecture about his legacy and in defense of policies that have contributed to the worst economic recovery since World War II and chaos around the world.  Families continue to struggle and there is not a single place in the world which is safer or more stable today than on the day President Obama took office seven years ago.”

“That is why the House of Representatives will be putting forward bold policy ideas this year to balance our budget, grow the economy, empower people to escape poverty, fix our broken health care system, rein in an out of control bureaucracy, and most importantly, rebuild our military and secure our borders to keep the American people safe.”
