U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today shared what he hopes to hear from President Obama in tonight’s State of the Union Address. "I miss the days when it was exciting to come to a State of the Union Address. It didn’t matter whether the president was a Republican or Democrat – it was a time for the country, for Congress, to come together and listen to the vision of the leader of our county. Unfortunately, over time we’ve seen these speeches become a political exercise — a production where Republicans stand up and applaud for Republican presidents and Democrats stand up and applaud for Democratic presidents."

"What I really want is a president who comes and levels with us – who tells us the truth and outlines what needs to be accomplished. What I want is the president to tell us how we can work together to solve problems in a commonsense way, and not use the State of the Union for political purposes in advance of this year's elections."
