Gov. Perry Response to State of the Union

Tuesday, January 28, 2014  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement in response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address:

"We didn't hear much tonight from President Obama that we haven't before, other than his intention to expand his own powers by bypassing Congress altogether. The strength of our Union is in our states, not Washington, and Texas has shown that the way to economic prosperity and significant job growth is through individual freedoms and the free market. Tonight, we saw a president with the same old agenda and no real idea on how to govern. Americans expect and deserve more from a president than continually broken promises and unfunded platitudes."
