TX Lawmakers React to State of the Union

By Bill O'Neil

Texas lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle on Capitol Hill are weighing in on President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address--with predictable results. 

Senator Ted Cruz said he is not impressed with what he has heard. 

"MIllions of Americans have lost their jobs, have been forced in to part time work, have lost their health care" Cruz said following the Address, adding "I though it was really striking the President did not say a word to the over five million people who have had their healthcare policies canceled because of Obamacare."  

Across the aisle, Congressman Pete Gallego found the President's address hopeful.  

"One of the things I really liked about his speech was that theme about the possible and the dreaming--and how we can make that possible for our kids" Gallego said. The Congressman saw another hopeful sign among the lawmakers watching the address.  

"I enjoyed the fact that Republicans and Democrats sat together in the chamber--and there was that really good sense of comaradarie" Gallego said.
