Press Release - Sessions Responds to the State of the Union Address

Jan 28, 2014
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, tonight released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address:
“Tonight’s State of the Union address was a missed opportunity for President Obama to admit that his policies have failed to meet the needs of the American people.  Instead, he promised a ‘year of action’ – even if that means circumventing Congress and the constitutional lawmaking process while making unilateral decisions through executive orders.
