U.S. SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL: “The biggest problem is the President made a speech that made it look like he’s going to run for office again. His time for running is over. His time for governing is here. And in order to accomplish things over the last two years of the Obama Administration, he needs to work with the Republican Congress. Much of what he did tonight, you know, new taxes, new spending is sort of the same old thing that we’ve heard over the last six years. What I had hoped was the President was going to focus on areas of possible agreement. There are a few: trade, tax reform, infrastructure—those are the things we need to be concentrating on and let the next election occur in 2016.”
