Alexander Statement on Tonight’s State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2015 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on President Obama’s last State of the Union address:
“Last year the Republican Senate majority made a real difference by passing several pieces of bipartisan legislation that will help American families, including the first major education reform since 2002 that fixes No Child Left Behind. This record shows that if President Obama focuses on what he agrees on with Congress instead of what we disagree on, there's quite a bit we could get done in 2016. The president has plenty of opportunities to work with the Republican majority to get things done that the American people want done.”
