Democratic Party of Georgia Chairman Mike Berlon on the President’s State of the Union Address

Democratic Party of Georgia Chairman Mike Berlon releases the following statement on last night’s State of the Union Address:

“President Obama’s State of the Union address reminded us of why the American people chose him as our leader. His blueprint for a job-creating economy that is built to last – one built on American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers, and a renewal of American values- is one that Georgia can fully support.

“This is a make-or-break moment for the middle class and those trying to reach it. We must build a nation where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules.

“The issue is fairness and the President articulated this theme clearly.

“When the average middle-class Georgian pays a higher tax rate than someone making $50 million a year, the rules are out-of-balance.  We fully support the President’s plan, and I felt he gave an inspirational and substantive State of the Union address.”
