Rothfus Responds to President Trump’s State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON – Congressman Keith Rothfus (PA-12) issued the following statement after President Trump delivered his State of the Union Address:
“It was great to hear President Trump’s State of the Union Address tonight, and the progress we have made over the last year. Americans are seeing an economy that is roaring back to life with almost daily announcements from companies about major investments that they are making in their people, in their businesses, and in the economy. Economic growth is particularly important because when the economy is healthy, and thriving, it will bring in the revenues needed to fund critical programs laid out by the President – including the nation’s infrastructure, military, and opioid treatment, prevention and law enforcement programs. While these challenges are being addressed, there is still more that must be done on these matters as well as on immigration reform and border security. I am a co-sponsor of the Securing America’s Future Act that takes a two-fold approach to address both the border situation as well as the children who came here by no fault of their own. We in Congress have a tremendous opportunity ahead of us to continue our work on the priorities set forth by the President to build a safe, strong, prosperous America.”
