WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) issued the following statement tonight following President Obama’s address to a Joint Session of Congress:
“With 14 million Americans looking for work, our government’s first priority should be to create an environment where businesses can grow and hire workers again. Yet the plan laid out by President Obama tonight is largely based on the same stimulus proposals from the last two and a half years – which resulted in the loss of 1.7 million American jobs.
“I had hoped to hear the President outline a different approach to get our economy back on sound footing – rather than more of the same failed policies. In the weeks ahead, I will redouble my efforts and work with my colleagues to pursue a number of policies that will truly grow the economy, so we can make certain those Americans who are looking for work, can find work.”
