Conaway: President Obama Lays Out Failed Plans for His Last Year
Washington – Tonight, President Obama delivered his final State of the Union Address to a Joint Session of Congress. Congressman Mike Conaway released the following statement in response to the President’s address:
“Unsurprisingly, President Obama’s vision of 'change' for the last year of his failed presidency is new regulations, costly social programs, and more big government policies infringing on every aspect of our lives. The President is doing everything he can to pad his inadequate ‘legacy’ through his last acts this year. Throughout his speech tonight and his actions over the last seven years, his blatant disregard for our Constitution is crystal clear. It is absolutely apparent that he has no desire to act on behalf of the American people- he would much rather act unilaterally, without any concern for the millions of lives he is negatively impacting.
“It is my hope that Congress will band together to prevent the President from causing further irreparable harm to our nation. Soon, we will vote to override the President’s veto on legislation to repeal Obamacare and completely defund Planned Parenthood. This vote will give the American people a clear sight into those who support the President, and those who are taking a stand against our failing health insurance system and the illegal harvest and sale of fetal tissue by Planned Parenthood.
“The President’s empty rhetoric is simply a sign that he is flailing for relevancy in his last year in office. Unfortunately for the President, he will be remembered instead for one of the slowest economic recoveries in history, his failed foreign policies that have left our nation more vulnerable, and the disastrous implementation of a terrible healthcare system.”
