WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) delivered the following statement in response to the President’s State of the Union address.
“In a world more dangerous, a country more divided and a people more disheartened than when he took office, the President’s speech was remarkably disconnected from the worries of everyday Americans. Instead of devoting his final State of the Union to his personal vision for our country, he should have focused on pro-growth policies that matter most to families and local job creators.
“By contrast, Ways and Means Committee lawmakers are listening to Americans who want Washington to take action now to improve our economy and get our country back on the right track. We are aggressively advancing legislative solutions to help more people enjoy better jobs, bigger paychecks and greater opportunities.”
