Hill"s Response To Obama's State of the Union

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, after President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union Address, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) released the following statement:

“People throughout Arkansas and the rest of the country are tired of the president’s my-way-or-the-highway approach to governing, and tonight’s speech offered no assurances that he is ready to ditch that mentality. Tonight, he once again showed his habit of coming to Congress to pontificate and not to join in or support our bipartisan efforts on major issues facing this Nation. We need a president who wants to work with Congress to improve our economy and put forth a plan to defeat enemies like ISIS.

“I also am troubled that the president didn’t address today’s news that ten American sailors have been arrested by the Iranian government. Iran continues to demonstrate that it can’t be trusted, even in the wake of the massive sanctions relief the president’s administration provided them through last year’s nuclear deal. Iran is not our friend, and this president must use his last year in office to push back against their aggressive actions towards America and its allies.”
