[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today released the following statement in reaction to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.  

“Tonight we heard the President lay out a plan for an American economy that values hard work, promotes fairness and rewards responsibility. He spoke about an economy based on American energy and manufacturing and built by the highest skilled workers in the world.”


“I support that plan and the President’s vision for an America that helps those who are suffering, emboldens those who are working hard and playing by the rules and levels the playing field for everyone – not just the privileged few.”
