President Barack Obama will deliver the State of the Union address tonight in Washington, D.C.
But Oklahoma Representative Markwayne Mullin does not have any expectations about what the president has to say.
“Words are cheap… actions speak louder,” said Mullin. Mullin also told the FOX23 Washington Bureau he’s heard plenty of the president’s quote, “fancy speeches.”
White House aides say the president will talk about job creation and the economy. Mullin says small businesses are the backbone of America and he wants to hear how the president plans to grow them.
“We’re going to have to be serious about making hard decisions. Limit government and make it easier for business owners to go to work.” Says Mullin.
Mullin also says he wants to hear President Obama talk about changes to Medicare and entitlements, “He is supposed to be leading this country, laying a path for future prosperity for future generations. Instead we’re spending their money and leaving crumbs for them.”
A senior White House official says the biggest subject of the speech tonight will be jobs, and the president will also announce the withdrawal of 34,000 troops from Afghanistan by this time next year.
