U.S. Rep. Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05) offered the following response to President Barack H. Obama’s February 12, 2013 State of the Union Address:    

"Tonight’s speech was another, tired rendition by this President for even bigger government, job stifling regulations that hurt our job creators, and boneheaded policies that weaken the prosperity and economic opportunity of all Kentuckians."

Rogers has served Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District since 1981. With a focus on economic development, job creation, fighting illegal drugs and preserving Appalachia’s natural treasures, he has a reputation for listening to his constituents and fighting for the region he represents. For more information, visit or follow Rogers on Twitter!/RepHalRogers or on Facebook!/CongressmanHalRogers.
