Chamber No Fan of SOTU

January 24, 2012
Seven minutes into President Obama's State of the Union address, Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donohue was out with a statement criticizing it: 

Tonight the president addressed a number of subjects important to the economy and our nation. Unfortunately, too many of the solutions he proposed rest on higher taxes, more spending, and an avalanche of new regulations. The way to create the jobs Americans need is to grow our free enterprise economy, not to further expand the federal government. 

The Chamber stands ready to work with the administration and both parties in Congress to create American jobs without raising taxes or adding to the deficit. Stronger growth is fundamental to creating more opportunity, a more inclusive economy, and a better quality of life for all Americans.

All participants in this discussion should concentrate on uniting Americans around a common plan, not dividing them for political purposes.
