WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) tonight made the following statement on President Obama’s final State of the Union Address.
“An overwhelming majority of South Dakotans – and all Americans – are dissatisfied with the direction of our country, and tonight’s speech lacked any serious ideas for working together to renew and reenergize the people’s faith in the American dream. The facts are clear: our economy is stagnant, the VA is broken, Obamacare is failing, manufacturing has shrunk, Americans don’t feel safe from terrorism and damaging new regulations being promulgated by this administration are hurting hard-working families and businesses. I believe we can do a lot more good for our country if we face the challenges before us and make our country better than it is today. Only then can we truly solve the important issues before us.
