Congressman Barletta Issues Statement on Tonight's State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON – 11th Congressional District Representative Lou Barletta released the following statement regarding President Obama’s State of the Union address tonight.
“I was encouraged by the President’s focus tonight on the need to create jobs and grow our economy,” Barletta said.
"Just like so many families in the 11th Congressional District have been forced to do, the federal government must tighten its belt when it comes to spending. In these difficult economic times our focus must remain on cost-saving measures such as the repeal of government-run health care and a return to lower spending levels that will provide our economy with the freedom to grow and generate jobs.
“The American people deserve fiscally responsible solutions that will create jobs and set our economy on the right track. I look forward to working with anyone who shares my commitment to find innovativeways to solve the most critical issues facing the 11th Congressional District and our nation today.”
