Congressman Tim Griffin reacts to State of the Union

WASHINGTON - Congressman Tim Griffin issued the following statement in response to President Obama's State of the Union (SOTU) address:                                                       

Sadly, President Obama has become a spectator to history when it comes to addressing our out-of-control spending and encouraging job creation.  The time for talk has long passed; it's time for him to lead or follow.

I wish the President had offered a bold, real plan for balancing our budget - or pledged to work with us to get our spending under control.
