WASHINGTON, DC – Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-Palm Desert) released the following statement on President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address.

“Tonight, President Obama outlined an ambitious plan focused on strengthening middle class families, creating jobs, protecting seniors’ retirement savings, and making a high quality education more affordable and accessible. These priorities would go a long way to help middle class families in the Coachella Valley and those in our underserved communities work their way into the middle class.

“To accomplish these goals, the President must work together with House and Senate Republican leadership to find common ground on these pressing issues. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find pragmatic, sustainable, and fiscally responsible ways to implement solutions for the middle class.”
