Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on President Obama's State of the Union address:
"The President laid out the clear differences between the Democratic vision of progress and expanded opportunity, and the same old Republican plan to take us back to the disastrous policies of the past and continue a dangerous social agenda instead of putting Americans back to work.
"Five years after the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, our economy is rebounding, more than eight million new jobs have been created in the past 46 months, and we are primed to create even more in the future. Democrats know we have much more work to do, and are hard at work to get the job done.
"Republicans ideological obsession with refighting the health care battles of past regardless of the cost, is a constant reminder of their pathetic failure to rebrand their out of touch party after the 2012 elections, and instead double down on the same chilling rhetoric and radical Tea Party policies that continue to alienate voters."
