|Terry Statement on the 2012 State of the Union Address|
WASHINGTON, DC –Tuesday January 24th, 2012
Congressman Lee Terry (R-NE) today issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama's 2012 State of the Union Address.
"While the President claims that we need to revive the American middle class – he denies the creation of 20,000 Americans jobs by rejecting the Keystone XL Pipeline.
"The President's tactics have failed to get our country back on track. Since he took office, 2 million more Americans are out of work, the deficit has doubled, and more Americans than ever are on food stamps.
"Tonight's rhetoric won't translate into policies or legislation that will benefit Americans who are hurting at this time. We need less talk, and different action."
