Congressman Benishek Criticizes Obama Speech
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 1st District Republican Congressman Dan Benishek is criticizing President Barack Obama for not offering any new ideas in his State of the Union speech last night.
Congressman Benishek says the president simply outlined more spending, more borrowing, and more tax increases. He says the president has tried to improve the economy by wasting trillions of dollars the country does not have on failed stimulus plans and new government programs and the approach has not worked.
Benishek says Washington needs to stop fighting and work together to find solutions that grow the economy, help families, and give our children a better future.
