STATEMENT: Santorum Responds to State of the Union Address

VERONA, PA - Former presidential candidate, former U.S. Senator, and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum issued the following statement in response to President Obama's State of the Union address.

Rick Santorum said: "The President's speech tonight was previewed as a 'Robin Hood' Address, but the problem is Barack Obama doesn't just want to take from the rich and give to the poor, he wants to take from the rich, poor, and everyone in between and give to his Administration.  Increasing taxes on average Americans looking to save for college, on the land of hard working farming families, and on millions of our neighbors is not a prescription for empowering the great middle of America that is hurting.  We need an Administration that is prepared to fight for working Americans, not just make class warfare arguments that pit American against American." 

"And what may be most remarkable is President Obama's only passing reference to national security.  He failed to pay any meaningful attention to the threat of radical Islamic terrorists.  President Obama calls for a broader, smarter strategy, but that is not possible if he refuses to articulate who our enemies are. We need someone in the White House with the experience to navigate our national security challenges and the fortitude to be straight with the American people on how to tackle them.  Inauguration Day 2017 cannot come soon enough," Santorum concluded.
