Rep. Horn Responds to President Trump’s State of the Union Address

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kendra Horn made the following statement regarding President Trump’s State of the Union address.

“I heard a message tonight from the President about working together across the aisle. I hope the President’s calls for bipartisanship were indeed genuine. I have long said that we have more that unites us than divides us. Now is the time for radical pragmatism and putting partisan labels aside for the best interests of Oklahoma and the country. Oklahomans know that, for our country to solve its most challenging problems, the President and Congress must work together.

I have heard again and again from Oklahomans about the need for affordable healthcare, the burden of student loan debt, and the importance of rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure. These issues will not solve themselves. As a Member of Congress, these are some of the important issues I look forward to tackling with my colleagues.

With my appointments to the powerful House Armed Services Committee and influential Science, Space, and Technology Committee, and as chair of the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work to get our nation’s fiscal house in order, strengthen our national security, and create a path to prosperity for the middle class. I have and will continue to put the interests of Oklahomans over party so our state and country can move forward.”
