DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on the State of the Union
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement after President Obama delivered the State of the Union.
"Tonight, President Obama reminded the American people what it means to be an American – a chance at a good paying job, a roof over your head, security when you retire and a level economic playing field if you work hard and play by the rules. The President outlined an economy built to last with critical infrastructure investments and a renewed commitment to the middle class.
"All we heard from Republicans tonight was more of the same that led to this Republicans Congress of Chronic Chaos. Republicans top priority is to protect special interests from fundamental reform and protect millionaires and billionaires from paying their fair share.
"Voters are disillusioned, disenchanted, and even disgusted with House Republicans and will continue to hold them accountable for protecting the ultra wealthy at the expense of the middle class, seniors and the American dream."
