Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement on President Obama’s State of the Union address:
“The president gave a strong speech tonight. He reiterated what the American dream means and said if we live up to our values, our country will be stronger.
“Two items stood out for California. First, housing. The president rightly focused on underwater homes and holding lenders accountable. Second, jobs. The president outlined a series of areas—from tax reform and education to energy policy and manufacturing—that need immediate attention to strengthen the economy, create jobs and help struggling middle-class families.”
