WASHINGTON D.C. – Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-02) made the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address:
“The president and I have two very different visions for the future of this country. His vision is an idea of higher taxes on hardworking Americans, burdensome government regulations, higher spending, and a reckless national defense that further endangers our country.
“My vision is one I share with my constituents and Americans across the country – they want a future that empowers people, not Washington, DC. Our vision is lower taxes, less government intrusion and the strongest military to protect America. We want a balanced budget, not taxes on hardworking people and higher spending. We want our country, and our Commander in Chief, to lead on national security. Whether it’s ensuring America’s veterans receive the benefits they deserve, strengthening our national defense and military, or making sure hungry kids have food to eat, these are the priorities I have, and will continue to fight for on behalf of my constituents.”
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District in Indiana, where she serves as a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, House Armed Services Committee, and House Committee on Agriculture.
