Cramer Reacts to State of the Union Speech

Posted: Updated:

Last night President Barack Obama addressed the nation for his fifth State of the Union.

During the hour long speech he focused on a variety of issues facing the nation saying he would take them on himself if congress doesn't act. Obama says he will issue an executive order to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.

He also stressed the importance of growing the economy and adding jobs. Representative Kevin Cramer says if the president wanted to do those things, he has already had the chance.

"We've had dozens of jobs bills that languish under his watch either in the Senate Majority Leader's office, or somewhere else, who knows where. The Keystone XL pipeline is a good example of one of those jobs bills that continues to sit unapproved on his desk after six years of study, and proposed fixes to our broken healthcare system are met with veto threats," says Cramer.

We'll have reaction from Senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp coming up on the evening report.
