Congressman Harris on the State of Union

WASHINGTON, DC: Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union tonight:

“Tonight, we heard the President outline his plan for the country and unfortunately we have heard it all before. More taxes, more spending. President Obama claims to want to help hard-working taxpayers, yet he continues to advocate for the failing policies that have hampered job creation and growth in the economy. He made it clear that he wants to raise taxes again, while continuing to spend even more money we do not have.

“Republicans will continue to focus on legislation that will help hard-working taxpayers and improve the economic environment for job creators, such as moving forward and building the Keystone Pipeline, and dialing back government overregulation.”
