WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) issued the following statement before President Obama’s final State of the Union address this evening:

“Like a bad New Year’s Resolution, for the past six January’s President Obama has come before Congress and the American people and delivered a State of the Union address that promises that this year things will be different. But despite all of the president’s words and promises, our economy continues to struggle, the national debt threatens the future of our country, and the nuclear deal struck with Iran and lack of a clear strategy against ISIS make the world a more dangerous place for the United States.

“Tonight is a chance for the president to leave the rhetoric and failed policies behind him and come to Capitol Hill with something new. Hardworking Americans deserve an outline for a people first, pro-growth economy, a real plan to balance the budget, a strategy to protect the United States, and an emphasis on the rights and liberties granted by the Constitution. Those are 2016 resolutions that everyone can get behind.”

Rep. Scott Garrett is a senior member of the House Budget Committee and Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government-Sponsored Enterprises.

  1. Why is the subsidized Christmas tree farmer out and about? Can it be he may finally realize he should be answerable to Bergen county residents instead of subsidizing his red state buddies with OUR tax dollars?

  2. This is not “what we all think”.

  3. This blog still prints its own bias views, and does not present fair commentary. Perhaps, it will improve.

    1. Why Dom you are one of the most partisan biased people in town yet we regulary print some of your comments for comic relief

  4. Your right James.

  5. Every STOU by both parties is is a failed wish list.

  6. Whereas you, Dom, get your news and view of the world from everywhere else, which is mostly made up of leftist propaganda in the form of the mainstream media.
