WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s final State of the Union address:

“Just a few hours ago 10 American sailors were captured by the Iranian military.  Just a few days ago a refugee in Houston was arrested as part of terrorist plot.  Just a few weeks ago a jihadist couple in San Bernardino murdered 14 people.   But listening to Obama talk, you’d think everything was going well.   Obama seems to think his foreign policy is working, when we all know that it is much to the contrary. 

“It also came as no surprise that the President failed to discuss the biggest issues my constituents and I are concerned about right now – issues that are on the forefront of most Americans – like illegal immigration, Obamacare, and the soaring debt under Obama.

“While tonight was certainly more of the same from this President, as a staunch Constitutional conservative I will continue to do what’s right for America.

"We must protect our homeland.  We must put American citizens first.  We must repeal and replace Obamacare.  And we must get our budget balanced and pay down the debt.  And while it will be a long, up-hill battle this last year with Obama, this is why we must get a Republican in the White House in 2017 so we can finally get our country back on track and create a better future – not only for ourselves, but our children and grandchildren as well.  This is what Americans want, need, and deserve.”
