    FOXX asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. FOXX. Mr. Speaker, the American people spoke loud and clear in November, but it is evident from last night's State of the Union that President Obama wasn't listening. Despite a rejection of his policies at the ballot [[Page H443]] box, the President continues to propose outdated, Washington-centered ideas that simply don't work.



    The American people want Washington to stop interfering in their lives, and they don't need more one-size-fits-all Federal dictates. Republicans have a vision for the future, but President Obama appears to be mired in the past.

    Last night, the President expressed a willingness to work with Republicans, and I hope that gesture is sincere. In the past, working together too often meant agreeing with whatever the President said. It is time for President Obama to live up to his rhetoric. House Republicans are eager to work together to increase opportunities for all Americans and empower people, not Washington.
