President Barack Obama raised a wide range of economic, education and environmental issues during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.
New Hampshire’s delegation to the U.S. Congress -- its two U.S. senators and two U.S. representative -- reacted along party lines.
The lone Republican in the delegation -- U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte -- was more aligned with the GOP view that the emphasis should have been more on how the programs would be paid for.

U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (not posted on her web site):
I appreciated President Obama's optimism even as he spoke about our challenges. He reminded us that whether it's job creation, national security, climate change, education, housing affordability, or gun violence, we are one people, and, as he said, it is our task to 'be the authors of the next chapter in our American story.' Our task is clear - to work together to make it a great chapter.’
U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster
