Senator McKinney’s Response to the State of the Union Address

January 25, 2011

“The prescription for our predicament in Washington and Hartford boils down to two words: ‘reduce spending.’ The American people are frustrated with the amount of state and federal spending and the negative impact it has had on their lives. Tonight President Obama said some encouraging things about working in a bipartisan way to put our fiscal house in order, just as Governor Malloy has said some encouraging things about reducing spending in Connecticut. They both have the talking part done. Now we’ll see if their actions match their rhetoric. For the sake of our state and country, I hope they do.”
