Washington, DC – Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01) released the following statement following the State of the Union: 

"The State of the Union has historically presented a tone of optimism and bipartisanship. I am glad the President continued this tradition and conveyed a message of American prosperity and security. It is my hope that Republicans and Democrats will work together to combat the pressing issues facing our nation, as there is more that unites us than divides us. As was articulated tonight, it is time to put aside the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution for the wellbeing of our great nation.”
