LI politicians react to State of the Union Address

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.): “This evening, President Obama

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.): “This evening, President Obama presented a compelling plan of how to achieve real opportunity for all hardworking Americans. There is no doubt, the state of our union will grow stronger when every middle-class American has a fair shot to earn their way ahead in our economy, and the next generation is equipped with the skills they need to reach their full economic potential.” “I hope that with President Obama, and with Democrats and Republicans working together in Congress, we can bring America's outdated workplace polices into the 21st century, and give middle-class workers the security they deserve.” (Credit: Getty Images)
