Congressman Chris Collins Reacts to the President's State of the Union
“Sometimes, there's nothing more disappointing than when a leader misses the opportunity to lead.
Instead of talking about cutting spending, the President talked about raising taxes. Instead of talking about growing the economy, the President outlined new spending programs. And, instead of talking about creating jobs, the President proposed raising the federal minimum wage which will only have the opposite effect – killing jobs we so desperately need.
Despite what I failed to hear tonight in the President’s State of the Union, it is my hope that Washington will work together over the next several months to do what is necessary to put this country back on the right track.”
