GOP response to State of the Union Address

In case you missed the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address … you can watch it here … along with reaction from some of your Kentucky Congressional delegation.

Republicans are dismissing President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address as nothing more than a call for bigger government, more spending and more tax increases.

Republicans are vowing to promote economic growth to help middle-class families find good jobs.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio delivered the Republican response.


Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul delivered the Tea Party response.


Here is what Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had to say.


5th District Congressman Hal Rogers issued this written statement.

"Tonight’s speech was another, tired rendition by this President for even bigger government, job stifling regulations that hurt our job creators, and boneheaded policies that weaken the prosperity and economic opportunity of all Kentuckians."
