Crapo Responds to President's State of the Union address

WASHINGTON, D.C.  - Idaho Senator Mike Crapo issued the following in response to the President's State of the Union Address:

"Tonight, President Obama used his final State of the Union address to outline his vision and priorities for our country.  But again, he continues to pursue more growth in government and more unrestrained spending.  I have disagreed with many of the President's initiatives during his presidency.  But our failure to deal with our fiscal crisis is paramount.  Over the last seven years we have seen an explosion of debt, an unprecedented growth of government and a restriction of our privacy and freedoms.  Our national debt now exceeds $18.8 trillion.  We cannot continue to ignore our debt and simply try to spend our way into prosperity with borrowed money."
