Rep. Susan Davis Statement on the State of the Union Speech
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) released the following statement on the State of the Union speech.
“I asked my constituents in a survey what they wanted to hear in the president’s speech and health care was a top priority for them. There was little mention of health care tonight. Nothing about lowering premiums. Nothing about expanding coverage.
“Another disappointment was his infrastructure plan – or lack thereof. For more than a year, he has been touting his infrastructure plan with almost no details. I’m afraid it was more of the same tonight.
“San Diego is facing an infrastructure gap and remains in desperate need of improvements to our roads and schools.“Democrats in Congress are willing to work with him on the issue of infrastructure, but we simply are not seeing the leadership needed. The key to making State of the Union proposals a reality is leadership. That trait remains to be seen with this President.”
