U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3) tonight was not impressed with President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech.

Now is the time to focus on our debt and deficit and get the federal government’s spending problem under control, which is the only way to grow our struggling economy and get America back to work.”
