WISCONSIN (WKOW) — Wisconsin lawmakers in Washington, D.C., are reacting to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address. We’re adding their statements here as we receive them.
Sen. Ron Johnson: “Tonight, President Trump outlined a vision for Republicans and Democrats to work together to build a safer, more prosperous and secure country for every American. In many respects, the speech was a celebration of America — its heroes and accomplishments. I hope we can all be inspired by it and respond to the president’s call to choose greatness.”
Rep. Bryan Steil: “The president set forth an agenda that strengthens families and workers. There are clearly areas he discussed that both parties can work on to solve problems. I’m committed to cutting through the dysfunction in Washington and working with my colleagues to get results.”
Rep. Ron Kind: “We can all agree: America needs unity. We don’t need a Republican or Democratic agenda – we need an American agenda. I was encouraged to hear bipartisan proposals in tonight’s State of the Union, including a commitment to lowering drug prices, rebuilding our failing infrastructure, and investing in cancer research. I stand ready to work with all of my colleagues to find common ground, and will fight to break down the hyper-partisanship in Congress to make life better for Wisconsinites. There is far more that brings us together than divides us.”
