Reaction to State of the Union

U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, Republican

At a time for leadership and cooperation, the president continues to threaten unilateral executive action instead of offering to work with Republicans and Democrats. The president continues to advocate the politics of jealousy rather than promoting amessage that would inspire economic growth.

People in Mississippi and across the nation are doing their best to withstand the effects of policies that have driven workforce participation to its lowest level in almost 40 years. Government mandates and regulations are clearly not the answer. Instead of trying to ignore the Congress, President Obama should work with us to help families and businesses get ahead by easing the government’s burden on them.

U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee of First Congressional District, Republican

There’s a big disconnect between his words and his actions. With energy policy, his administration is holding up jobs that would be created with the Keystone Pipeline. But he called for more investments for things like Solyndra. He talked about health care but failed to acknowledge the massive problems the health care website has had and all of the waivers handed out for people to avoid it.

Rickey Cole, chairman of Mississippi Democratic Party

President Obama spoke about the real issues we face as a nation. He called on Congress to work with him to address these issues by passing practical, common sense solutions designed to grow our economy and strengthen our middle class. The American people are sick and tired of dysfunction in Washington. They seek leaders willing to work together in an effort to move our country forward.

    Reactions from the 3 MS legislators: navel-gazing tripe and fart noises. And what is Congressman Copy ‘n Past talking about? “Herp Derp website glitches pipeline?!” Couldn’t wedge in a Benghazi, or was that inadvertently left off your talking points?

    More of the same rhetoric from Republicans: not one of the three offered a single plan of action.
