Washington, DC – February 5, 2019….Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) tonight released the following statement in response to President Donald J. Trump's State of the Union address:
“President Trump delivered a powerful and unifying message tonight. He outlined an inspiring vision of American greatness, where the key to forging new solutions and unlocking the extraordinary promise of our nation’s future is rooted in a united people working together to face our challenges.
“By concentrating on what unites us, we can rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, fix our broken immigration system, secure our border, stand up for U.S. workers, deliver cost-savings for patients, bolster our national security, and build a stronger country. American exceptionalism has always stemmed from a pursuit of bold ideas, and these proposals reflect just that.
“We are also reminded of the strides that have been made. A booming economy, historically low unemployment, stronger military, renewed leadership abroad, and resurgence of opportunity has shown the progress President Trump wants to build on.
“Through leveraging the ingenuity that has made both Arkansas and America great, I’m confident that we can deliver on this bold agenda. Now it’s time to roll up our sleeves, push through the gridlock, and get to work.”
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He serves as the Ranking Member of the House Committee on the Budget and is a member of the House Appropriations defense and transportation, housing and urban development subcommittees.
