Senator Rand Paul has been selected by the Tea Party Express to give the Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union address next week. Paul’s response will come directly after the Republican response by Senator Marco Rubio and will be given from the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
“We are excited to have Senator Paul deliver the 3rd Tea Party State of the Union response next week. Americans are fed up with Washington politics that fail to address America’s fiscal woes. Tea Party Express has called for reducing the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government, and we have stood strongly for pro-growth policies to get the economy growing and job creation increased,” Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said in a statement. “Since the President has been re-elected, the debt has continued to skyrocket and unemployment has ticked up, but he has offered no solutions and has shown no leadership.
