Posted on January 18, 2015

WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2014 - U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on President Obama’s proposal to raise taxes that he will outline in his State of the Union address on Tuesday:

“Hopefully the president's address will also include some proposals that might actually have a chance to become law and help create jobs--such as expanding trade so more American products can be sold overseas, eliminating paperwork to make it easier for college students to apply for scholarships already available, and reducing taxes for businesses trying to hire more workers.”
