U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the President's State of the Union Address:
"Each year the President has promised, pledged, and pivoted, but American families continue to confront persistently high unemployment, rising health care costs, and the prospect of losing more of their hard-earned paychecks to tax increases.
"If we want to grow the nation's economy and create jobs, Washington needs to embrace the Texas model. I will continue to push this President to adopt our proven formula of limited government, low taxes, and sensible regulations - because America can, and should, do much better."
