GOP response to State of the Union

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union has held a consistent theme: that the president's proposals will hurt the middle class more than help them.

Senator Ron Johnson says, "Higher taxes, increased spending, and more government control in our lives will not help our economy achieve its full growth and potential if this is the path that President Obama has put America on."

Governor Scott Walker also released a reaction statement, saying, in part, that the president's address "Glossed over the serious fiscal problems facing our nation and failed to deliver an honest plan for real reform in America."
