Gov. Scott Walker issues statement on State of the Union

MADISON - Governor Scott Walker released a statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday night.

“It’s disappointing that tonight’s State of the Union Address glossed over the serious fiscal problems facing our nation and failed to deliver an honest plan for real reform in America."

“In Wisconsin, we faced our challenges head on and implemented reforms that eliminated a $3.6 billion deficit and created a healthy surplus without raising taxes. We’re developing our workforce, creating jobs and lowering our unemployment rate. Real reform is happening on the state level; but in order to move our country forward, President Obama can no longer ignore the overwhelming economic troubles looming over our nation. Enacting Wisconsin-like reforms will move our economy forward and put American families first.”
