WASHINGTON—Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Vista, CA) released the following statement tonight regarding President Obama’s State of the Union Address:
“The President tonight outlined a laundry list of popular programs without regard to what they cost and his own record in office.
“He has failed to deliver on economic growth promises, has squandered $800 billion in stimulus funds, and vetoed jobs and affordable domestic energy bills passed by Congress. What is clear is that he is pursuing a partisan class-warfare agenda aimed at dividing the American people.
“The American people deserve an efficient, effective government that works for them. I am ready to work with the President to cut the regulations and red tape that make it harder for workers and businesses to succeed, to confront the irresponsible overspending by this President and preceding Administrations, and to keep America competitive in a global economy.”
