The Chairman of the Delaware Republican Party, John Sigler released the following statement in response to President Obama's State of the Union address:
"It's that time of the year again -- when President Obama pretends he's concerned about the weak economy and the soaring national debt. But the citizens of Delaware have heard enough State of the Union addresses from President Obama to know the truth: he's not serious. He's not serious about creating jobs. He's not serious about deficit reduction. He's not serious about spending reform.
If he cared about the deficit, he would have kept his promise to cut it in half by the end of his term. If he cared about job creation, he would not have dismissed his Jobs Council earlier this month. Delaware voters know what the President and his fellow Democrats are really after: higher taxes. But taxes have alreaady gone up - not just on the rich but on everyone who collects a paycheck. Now is the time for real solutions and real reforms that put more money in Americans' pockets and creates a better future for the next generation.
