Webster: The State of the Union is Strong

Washington, DC – Florida Congressman Daniel Webster (R-Clermont), released the following statement regarding President Trump’s State of the Union address.

“The State of our Union is strong.  Thanks to three years of this administration’s leadership to get the government off the backs of hardworking Americans and put America first; our economy, our military, our families, our environment, and our communities are stronger. From appointing judges who know and respect the U.S. Constitution; to improving the VA and veteran services; to reducing tax burdens on small business owners and taxpayers; to streamlining and removing unnecessary red-tape that blocked infrastructure investments; improving our trade agreements for American workers, manufacturers and builders; securing our borders; and rebuilding our military – President Trump has kept his promises.

“The results are clear as more than 2.5 million Americans have risen out of poverty! Labor participation and wages are rising, especially for the bottom 10 percent of earners. In Florida 630,000 more jobs have been created, homeownership is up 3 percentage points and real, per-capita income is up 7 percent since the President’s election.

“There is more work to be done.  I welcomed hearing the President reiterate his commitment to tackling tough issues, fix broken systems, and stand up for our most vulnerable.  I hope my colleagues – Democrat and Republican alike – will put aside politics and work together to invest in our country’s infrastructure, improve border security and reduce and prioritize spending.”
