Sam Johnson Responds to President Trump’s First State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s first State of the Union address:
“President Trump’s words are a call to patriotism, and his commitment to our Great Nation, its citizens, and our American way of life is a breath of fresh air. This past year has seen the beginning of a much-needed turnaround from eight years of economic stagnation and a naïve, irresponsible foreign policy. As a 29-year Air Force veteran, I appreciate the President’s commitment to rebuilding our military and doing right by our veterans. On the economic front, we are already starting to see the positive results of pro-family, pro-growth tax reform. Workers are benefiting from lower taxes, bonuses, pay raises, and higher benefits. Meanwhile, companies are looking to invest billions of dollars and hire thousands of workers. This is what a conservative stimulus looks like.
“Over the next year, I look forward to working with Congress and our President to support and provide for the brave servicemen and women who defend us, to protect our homeland by finally securing the border, and to build upon tax reform with other pro-growth reforms to help ensure Americans from all walks of life can achieve the American dream.”
