Virginia House Speaker Bill Howell statement on Obama State of the Union address

bill howellVirginia House Speaker Bill Howell (R-Stafford) responded Tuesday to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address. 

“The President tonight sadly took a familiar approach, threatening to bypass the legislative branch rather than seeking areas of common ground with them. President Obama tonight outlined a political agenda for his liberal base, rather than a governing agenda that can win bipartisan support. The challenges our country faces will not be solved by President Obama’s new taxes on hardworking families. House Republicans in Richmond will continue to show that there is a better way than the partisan gridlock in Washington. The Virginia way. We will work across the aisle to fight to make college more affordable, to give every child a quality education and to make Virginia an even better place to start or grow a business.”
