DiNardo Statement on State of the Union Address

Hartford, CT — Tonight, Connecticut Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo released the following statement regarding the State of the Union address:

“Tonight, President Obama addressed the country and laid out a vision of opportunity, action and optimism for all Americans.

“The President’s plans to modestly raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10, extend unemployment insurance and to create new retirement savings plans will protect middle-class families – the backbone of our American economy.

“Meanwhile, as evidenced by their multiple competing responses, Republicans will continue to push their out of touch obstructionist policies that put politics before people.”
