Yoho Responds to State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON—Congressman Ted Yoho (FL-03) attended tonight’s State of the Union Address. After President Obama’s remarks, Congressman Yoho responded with the following statement:
“After experiencing my first State of the Union, it is evident now more than ever that our government is divided. We have our work cut out for us.
“Our Constitution guarantees life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is up to the individual to take a hold of the opportunities that are available to every citizen. It is our job as elected Representatives to protect that document. By doing so, we protect opportunity for every single American.
“I feel more passionately now than ever that we as the 113th Congress can and must come together, not as Republicans and Democrats but as Americans. Americans deserve more than carefully crafted speeches—they deserve action.
“I’m proud to be a member of a House of Representatives that has and will continue to take action to stop these reckless policies and champion American values like personal responsibility again.”
