Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) delivered the GOP response to the State of the Union Address Tuesday. Obama simply made promises to Americans which, despite their allure, can't solve problems, Rodgers claimed: "we want you to have a better life. The president wants that too. But we part ways when it comes to how to make that happen. So tonight I’d like to share a more hopeful Republican vision, one that empowers you, not the government. It’s one that champions free markets and trusts people to make their own decisions, not a government that decides for you."
