Jindal releases statement on Obama's State of the Union

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La.  (KNOE 8 NEWS) - Governor Bobby Jindal released a statement regarding President Obama's State of the Union address.  Jindal says:

"Tonight, President Obama doubled down on failed policies from the past while outlining his shortsighted vision for the future. Instead of committing his second term to growth and prosperity, the president confirmed that we have gone from the greed of Wall Street to the greed of government. It's about more, more, more. More government, more spending and more economic uncertainty.

"Government will never be big enough for President Obama. Taxes and spending will never be high enough for President Obama. Every policy championed by the President this evening is dependent on more money for government and more government control. Every debate in Washington is about taking more money out of the real economy and putting it into the Washington economy. It's government greed at its worst, and it's unsustainable.

"This President believes in pro-growth policies, but the problem is this – he believes in growing the government economy, not the private sector economy. We've had four years of growing government, and the results have been disastrous. It is liberalism run amok.

"It is time to grow the American economy, not the government economy, and the President must now show real leadership. With four more years in office, he needs to step up to the plate and do the job he was elected to do."
