Dean Responds To President Bush’s State Of The Union Address

Washington, DC – Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following statement in response to President Bush’s State of the Union address this evening:

“Democrats welcome President Bush’s call to achieve ‘big things’ for the American people, but he should remember that the American people know actions speak louder than words. For too long, the words from this President have not matched the action required to solve the problems that hard working Americans face. From the escalation of the war in Iraq to his new health care tax to the energy crisis, once again tonight, we heard more hollow promises and empty proposals that just won’t fix the problems.

“Last November, the American people spoke loud and clear. Democrats heard what they had to say and are focused on continuing to deliver on the promises we made as we pass an increase in the minimum wage, improve our homeland security, help more kids go to college and promote life saving stem cell research. We hope the President will make good on his rhetoric this time and truly work with the bipartisan Congress to get things done for the American people.”
