RNC Response to State of the Union

From RNC January 28, 2014

WASHINGTON – This evening, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following response to President Obama’s lackluster State of the Union address. Chairman Priebus issued a call for fairness and for accountability in government.

See the transcript below and watch the response here.

Transcript:

Good evening. I’m RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. Tonight, we heard the same old promises from President Obama. Promises for a better economy. Promises for better healthcare. Promises for a better government.

But after five years of promises, what do we have to show for it?

There are more Americans living in poverty than ever before.

People are giving up on looking for work.

Incomes have fallen.

And under ObamaCare, healthcare has actually gotten far more expensive. Five million Americans have received notices that their insurance is cancelled.

Now that’s not fair. It’s not fair that Americans lost insurance they liked because the president lied to them. Now, not only are people losing their insurance, they’re losing their doctors too.

We deserve a government that treats people fairly—and lets people make decisions that are right for them.

As Republicans, we believe in putting individuals in charge. It’s time we put power in the hands of people—not in the hands of a big and intrusive bureaucratic government.

We believe in a pretty simple idea. We want every American to have the chance to make it in this country. Whatever your American Dream is, we want you to have the opportunity to achieve it.

So that means we need great schools. And parents should be able to choose the school that’s right for their kids.

And it means we need a healthcare system that’s more affordable and accessible—and not run by bureaucrats.

We’ve tried the Democrats’ way. And we all know it’s just not working.

Their way means fewer choices in healthcare.

It means fewer choices in education.

And it means fewer choices in the job market.

None of that’s fair to the American people. But it’s what Democratic leadership has produced.

So there’s only way one to change course. This November, Americans will once again go to the polls to elect leaders at all levels of government. And it will be our chance to cast a vote for fairness, opportunity, and freedom. It will be our chance to vote Republican.

Thank you – and God Bless you.
