Senator John Kerry tonight released a statement following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address:
“If Members of Congress are going to be honest about it, there was a lot of common sense and even more common ground in tonight’s address. We shouldn’t have to wait for another year or another election to act like it. Tax reform, energy security, infrastructure, and jobs matter to all of us and we’re so much closer on these issues than the shrillness of our politics pretends we are. We ought to prove peoples’ suspicions wrong and prove that Congress can actually get something done even in an election year. Dysfunction isn’t defensible.”

Senator Kerry was seen earlier today at an event at the White House, for the Boston Bruins, sporting a couple of black eyes from a hockey game accident. Get well soon JK…
