Rep. Johnson's statement on the State of the Union address
WASHINGTON – Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) issued the following statement following President Obama’s State of the Union Address on Jan. 25, 2011.
“I share the President’s vision of an America that invests in its people by providing access to education and health care needed to lead the world in productivity and innovation,” said Johnson. “And I share the President’s call for investments in cutting-edge 21st century infrastructure and clean energy.
“There is no doubt that the economy we preside over today is better than the one we inherited. An economy that was shrinking is growing again. Instead of rapid job loss, more than a million private sector jobs were created last year. But we know we must do more to ensure that America and its workers can compete and win in the 21st century.”
