Brindisi issues statement following State of the Union address

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi of Utica issued the following statement reacting to President Trump’s State of the Union address:

“Tonight, we heard from the President about the importance of rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure, investing in job training and vocational schools, lowering healthcare and drug costs, improving treatment options for those addicted to drugs, and investing in our military. These are commendable goals; however, Congress has failed to put aside partisan bickering to work on these issues. I am eager to hear more specifics about the proposals the President outlined in his speech. At the same time, I remain concerned about attempts by some hardliners in Washington to strip health insurance from millions of people and the effect of the recently passed tax plan that will hurt New York’s economy and raise taxes for many New York residents. I will continue my efforts to work in a bipartisan manner to fight for the hardworking people of upstate New York.”
