Latham Responds to State of the Union

WASHINGTON, DC – Iowa Congressman Tom Latham issued the following response after President Obama’s State of the Union Address:

“As President Obama correctly noted in his address, our country faces grave challenges on a number of fronts.  First and foremost, leaders in Washington must focus on creating jobs, strengthening our economy and putting Americans back to work.  A real economic recovery will not take root, however, until Congress and the White House show a commitment to fiscal restraint.  Our country’s economic health is closely linked with its fiscal standing.

“But we must never lose sight of how the decisions made in Washington have a real impact on American families, farmers, workers and small business owners.  These challenges are far too big for any single leader or political party to face alone. I’m committed to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in Congress and with the White House to move our country forward toward prosperity and growth.  Every time our country has found itself in a moment of peril, we have risen to the challenge.  I have no doubt that the American people – regardless of political persuasion or background – will again live up to that proud tradition.”
