(Washington, DC) – Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) made the following statement tonight following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address:

“This evening the President outlined a clear roadmap for our country’s success as we continue to grow our economy. The President’s proposals to support American manufacturing and small business, who are the heart of our economic recovery, reinforce much of what I hear as I meet with students and working people in Connecticut. What’s most encouraging and important about the President’s message is that it supports what we’re doing in Connecticut – building a trained workforce, doing skill education in our technical schools and our community colleges, which I have visited throughout the state. Putting people back to work has to be what we make a priority, and reinforcing our values of fairness and rewarding hard work and responsibility are key to our continued success as a nation.”
