WASHINGTON, DC – Representative Kay Granger issued the following statement after President Obama delivered the State of the Union speech.
“Tonight, the President correctly said that across-the-board defense cuts would harm our military readiness and jeopardize our national security, but he did not offer a specific solution to stop these devastating cuts. Today’s nuclear test in North Korea is a reminder of the risks our country continues to face. We must maintain a military capable of responding to serious threats around the world.
"There are two weeks before these cuts go into effect. We need leadership and we need a plan."
