WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement in response to President Obama’s final State of the Union address:

Congressman Sensenbrenner:
“Since his first State of the Union address, President Obama has delivered thousands of empty words, and tonight was simply more of the same. But the American people will no longer tolerate flowery rhetoric followed by broken promises. We have an opportunity to pursue bold ideas and reclaim America’s promise in 2016. That is why Republicans are putting forth a focused agenda that will empower our citizens, rebuild faith in our future, and restore a confident America. It’s time to leave the President’s hollow words behind us and look forward to a prosperous new era for all Americans. ”
