GOODLATTE STATEMENT FOLLOWING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

“Actions speak louder than words and unfortunately the President’s rhetoric is not match by the actions of his Administration over the past three years in dramatically increasing government spending, government regulations and the size of the federal bureaucracy.

Quite simply we cannot tax and spend our way out of this crisis and yet it is more of these same failed policies that President Obama laid out tonight.

In stark contrast to President Obama’s agenda, House Republicans remain committed to pro-growth policies such as reining in our skyrocketing deficit spending which discourages investment, limiting the size of government by reducing costly and burdensome regulations which are hurting our small businesses, removing unnecessary barriers to domestic energy production which would provide us with significant access to new energy supplies with the twin goals of energy independence and the creation of millions of American jobs, and enacting meaningful tax reform which would help to generate economic expansion.”
