Senator Stabenow Statement on State of the Union Address

Tuesday, January 20, 2015


U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s State of the Union address:

“Our economy is growing at the fastest rate in over two decades thanks to an American auto industry that has rebounded and a resurgent American manufacturing industry that is creating new, innovative jobs every day. The most important priority is to make sure everyone who wants and needs a good paying job, gets a job. Tonight, President Obama laid out a clear plan to keep our country moving forward by investing in the very people who helped to build it—America’s middle class. That plan starts by cutting taxes for hard-working families, creating opportunities for every student to earn a college education, and training workers with the skills they need to match the needs of local businesses. We’ve come a long way, and I will keep fighting until every family in Michigan and across the country feels the recovery and has a fair shot to get ahead.”
