Wyoming's delegates in Washington each released statements Tuesday night in response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address.

Obama's speech focused on economic growth and job creation the same day Wyoming legislators called out democrats marking the 1,000th day since the Democratic Senate majority has passed a budget. Rep. Cynthia Lummis.

Sen. John Barrasso appeared on Fox News Tuesday before the president's speech, the 1,000th day, and the third time Democrats had delayed a release of a budget on the Senate floor. In his statement following the SOTU, Barrasso says the American people appreciate good speeches, but they want results.

President Obama touched on limiting Wall Street to reduce the deficit and on overall economic revival, saying he is working to address the need for skilled workers. He also asked for higher taxes on the wealthy.

Wyoming Legislators, and Republicans across the country, in response to Obama's points on economic growth again questioned the President's decision against the Keystone XL Pipeline. There has been talk of Canada working with Chinese buyers for the pipeline since its denial last week, and Obama said last night that he would not surrender energy projects to countries like China or Germany.
