Subject: Did you watch the State of the Union?
During his State of the Union speech, President Obama laid out his vision for our nation's future. As you know, the President and I have differing views on the direction we should take the country, and I stand by my conservative values of reduced spending, low taxes, and a strong national defense.
I took a few moments to record a special message for you on the issues facing America and I hope you'll take a moment to watch the video by following this link.
Last night the Senate Democrats agreed to raise the debt ceiling by $1.9 trillion to bring the total deficit to $14.3 trillion. This is unconscionable. While the President and Congressional Democrats advocate increased spending, I have actively advocated tax cuts, reduced spending and earmark reform to get our economy back on track.
The non-discretionary spending freeze announced by the President is a start, but what he also needs to do is promise to veto bills laden with pork barrel spending and begin creating jobs for the thousands of out-of-work Americans.
We currently face a national unemployment rate of over 10%, and it has only grown during President Obama's time in office. As we have seen, trillion-dollar, big-government stimulus packages are not the answer for creating jobs. To stimulate our economy for job growth, we need payroll tax cuts, tax incentives for small businesses and an assurance that Democrats will not raise taxes.
As a United States Senator, I fight each and every day for these and other conservative values. I won't settle for business-as-usual, behind-closed-doors politics. I'm not afraid to stand up and speak out for the majority of Americans who are angry at the current Democratic leadership in Washington.
AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT A CHANGE IN WASHINGTON
McCain voice's his concern and opinion , "The people of Massachusetts confirmed last week what we have been saying for a long time - the American people want a change in Washington and an end to big government solutions to problems like health care. I was proud to be an early supporter of Senator-elect Scott Brown's campaign. It was a landmark victory and I look forward to working with him to block government-run health care, tax increases and increased federal spending."

President Obama delivered his State of Union address reporting on America's health in a time of great uncertainty and concern and - in many cases anger - from the American people. As you know, the President and I each have a very different vision for the future of the country.
