WASHINGTON, Jan. 25 - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement tonight after President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress:

"The president covered a lot of territory but the issues that stand out for me are the need for our nation to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and create millions of new jobs, reduce our deficit in a fair and responsible way, and for us to make sure that Social Security remains strong not only for the present generation but for our kids and grandchildren."
