Delaney Reacts To State Of The Union

January 21st, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Sixth District Congressman John Delaney released the following statement this morning:

On January 20, 2015 President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress for the State of the Union Address. In his remarks, the President stated, “let’s pass a bipartisan infrastructure plan” to create jobs and “make this country stronger for decades to come.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Delaney re-filed the Partnership to Build America Act. One of the largest bipartisan bills in Congress, the Partnership to Build America Act uses international tax reform to finance new infrastructure projects.

“As the President rightly pointed out, it is time to leave the rancor and the cynicism behind and work together,” said Congressman Delaney. “The President called upon Congress to pass a big bipartisan infrastructure bill. That’s precisely what we have with the Partnership to Build America Act, a new solution that takes the best ideas from both parties, with over 40 members of each party offering their support. For two years I’ve been working to build a new coalition around this approach to infrastructure and I was heartened to see the President offer his support for our framework. We’re going to continue to work to sustain the momentum behind our bill. The President’s remarks were an important reminder of the big picture – the strength and resilience of the American people, the progress we’ve made, the ideals we share and the work left to be done.”
