WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (NY-8) released the following statement after President Obama delivered his State of the Union Address to a Joint Session of Congress:

“The dysfunction that characterized Congress in 2013 must yield to a year of legislative action on behalf of the American people. President Obama made clear that he is prepared to move forward in order to expand economic opportunity for working class families and the middle class. It is time for Congress to step up and do its part for the good of the country.”
