Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address:

“It will take more than a speech to paper over President Trump’s consistent view that the only obligation he has is to his political base.

“We heard nothing in tonight’s speech that addressed how the President will help raise incomes for middle-class Americans, make quality higher education more affordable, or address the urgent problem of climate change.

“The state I represent is a third republican, a third democratic, and a third independent. Colorado knows what hard, bipartisan work really looks like. We’ll be looking in the days, months, and years ahead to see if any of it can be produced in Washington.”
