Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) issued the following statement in reaction to the State of the Union address, delivered by President Obama this evening. 

“Tonight, I sat in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives with an open mind, not listening for Democratic or Republican talking points, but instead listening for Texas values and ideas that will continue to move our state and country forward. I was pleased to hear the President emphasize the creation of opportunities for all Americans and the expansion of the middle class, and I agree with the President that this starts with economic fairness and access to quality, affordable healthcare and education for all Americans.

“Ultimately, speeches are just words, and I stand ready and willing to back those words up with action by working with the President, Democrats, and Republicans who will help fight for what Texans need, and the continued growth of our economy.”
