Reaction to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address:
"We hope the president will join us in a year of real action - by empowering people, not making their lives harder with unprecedented spending, higher taxes and fewer jobs. As Republicans, we advance these plans every day because we believe in a government that trusts people and doesn't limit where you finish because of where you started. That is what we stand for - for an America that is every bit as compassionate as it is exceptional." - Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., in the official GOP response.
