U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s State of the Union address.
“Tonight, President Obama addressed the importance of reigniting the American dream and ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to succeed if they work hard and play by the rules.“I agree with President Obama’s call that to grow our economy, our focus has to be on ensuring that Americans have the skills and education necessary for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Our tax policy must work to support entrepreneurship, manufacturing and innovation, which are at the core of our economic vitality. We must invest in essential infrastructure from broadband to bridges, and continue to do the work necessary to get our fiscal house in order.“We must build a nation where the opportunity for success is available to all Americans and our middle class is able to prosper.“I urge my Republican colleagues to work with President Obama and Democrats to find common ground to meet our obligations as a nation and make the right investments for our future. The American people cannot afford to wait.”
