Senator Bob Corker Responds to State of the Union Address

Washington, DC (WVLT) - Republican Senator Bob Corker offers his thoughts on the State of the Union address.

“I was glad to hear the President focus on health care, on energy and on fiscal responsibility. It is vital that the federal government becomes fiscally responsible, and that we balance the budget while keeping taxes low and ending the abuse of wasteful earmarks. At the same time, to be prepared to compete in the 21st century, our country must embrace new technologies that lead to energy independence, and we must ensure that health care for our citizens becomes more accessible and affordable.”
