Rep. Yarmuth Statement on President Obama's State of the Union Address

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the statement below following President Obama’s final State of the Union address:

“Tonight, President Obama issued a wake-up call for both the American people and for this Congress. He acknowledged the progress we’ve made as a nation, and laid out a plan for where we can go from here. Under his leadership, we emerged from the Great Recession, revitalized manufacturing, invested in education and job training, and made access to affordable health care a right—not a privilege. But the President also reminded us that more must be done to address the problems we face and to continue to move our nation forward. We’ll never be able to successfully take on these challenges unless we put the fear of change and division aside. I look forward to working with the President in his final year in office to make sure that the people who work so hard to make our country great have a say in the policies that impact their lives and futures.”
