Statement: Sanders on State of the Union

WASHINGTON, January 27 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement tonight after President Obama delivered the State of the Union address:

“I thought the president gave a strong, persuasive and articulate speech. As he indicated, this country faces some of the most serious problems that we have ever encountered, including the worst economy since the Great Depression.  The president is right in saying that as Americans ‘we don’t quit.’ I have every confidence that the American people – with our energy, idealism and intelligence – can fight our way through the current crises and leave our children a better country than we inherited.”
