(Washington, DC) – Representative Daniel Webster (FL-10) issued the following statement following the President’s State of the Union address:  

“With the results of this last election, the American people have clearly spoken. They want their government to advance policies that empower all Americans to achieve the American Dream. Instead, tonight the President again ignored this message and doubled down on the same old politics of tax and spend, where one group is pitted against another and where Washington picks winners and losers.

“What America needs is a government that furthers common sense solutions, such as a tax code that ensures all hardworking families, individuals and small business owners keep more of their paychecks to reinvest as they see fit. Furthering the same divisive, top down approach, just with a new wrapper, is not a plan to strengthen our economy, create jobs, and solve our debt crisis.

“The American people are looking for and deserving of proven polices and principle-based solutions. It is time both the President and Washington listened.”
