US Senators from Wyoming and Idaho are taking issue with the tone of President Obama’s State of the Union Speech Tuesday night saying he needs to focus on the big issues; like putting the nation’s economy back on track – and promote the Congress working together. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso says it is time the Presidentleads on such issues as energy development, health care, the debt and jobs. Barrasso says, “It’s really too bad he insists on going around Congress instead of working with us on bills that both Democrats and Republicans support.” Idaho Senator Mike Crapo says the President’s proposal to raise minimum wage by executive order is a very dangerous thing to do. Crapo says at a time the country is trying to grow out of an economic slump, if you have yet another hit on small businesses, it will actually cause fewer jobs and greater pressure on the salaries of those who have jobs. Says Crapo, “What we need to do is we need to start strengthening the economy, addressing our mounting debt, reforming the tax code.” Crapo says by doing some of these types of things, it will actually stimulate a private sector growth, boost the small businesses and that in turn will help them to boost wages.
