Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s sixth State of the Union address:

"Tonight, President Obama spoke to our best intentions as Americans. At a time when a hard-day’s work doesn’t earn a livable wage and solutions in Washington stall out in political gridlock, the president’s proposals extend beyond the partisan rancor to address the challenges of our time.
 
"The American people deserve better governance for their tax dollars than what they got in 2013, which is why I am glad the president will use executive orders where Congress does not act. We have an economy on the mend, a healthcare law to implement, and an immigration system in desperate need of reform. These challenges demand action, and stonewalling over the past year has only raised the stakes higher. Tonight, President Obama gave us a realistic alternative to the politics of polarization, and it’s one I am proud to join him in fighting for."

Excellent comments Rep. Chu. Our president knows what this country needs. Now the congress either needs to join with him and help him get things done, or get out of his way.
