Roskam: State of the Union Address Will be 'Inauguration Speech 2.0'

Peter Roskam talks about President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address on CNBC.

U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) said he doesn't expect to see President Barack Obama embrace bipartisanship in his State of the Union address Tuesday night, according to CNBC.

He said he'd like to be surprised with some bipartisanship from Obama, but thinks the speech will be his "Inauguration Speech 2.0."

The following message is from Peter Roskam's office:

The President’s Illinois Worldview Isn’t Growing the Economy

“You take Illinois spending patterns and extrapolate that onto the U.S. economy and that’s where the president is proposing to lead us—to about $26 trillion in debt. I don’t think we’re going to hear a lot about how the president can grow the economy through the private sector and why unemployment is still at a nagging 7.9 percent. I think that's where the action is and what he should be talking about but I don't think that's what we'll be hearing.”

Democrats Still Want More New Revenues from Taxpayers

“Already they are going back into the old democrat muscle memory. And that is, let's go to the taxpayers yet again, even though, right at the end of December a huge boost in terms of new tax revenues is coming in with the tax hike.”

The State of the Union address will be 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12.

GOP hates blacks! That statement must have been made by a Dem! Only a Dem is that stupid. Blacks are back in slavery because of Obama. The only difference is there is a Black man running the plantation now!~ Wake up...
