House Speaker John Boehner is in Hamilton on Monday, on the eve of the State of the Union address.
Boehner toured the Vinylmax LLC facility in Hamilton and delivered brief remarks to the company's employees. Boehner told employees a that the nation's economy is limping and could do a lot better. He says the sooner there is Washington action on fiscal problems, the sooner the economy will improve.
The Hamilton-based company is a family-owned business that has grown over three decades to have hundreds of employees.
President Barack Obama is expected to talk about his plans for job creation and deficit reduction as he begins his second term, as well as about avoiding across-the-board spending cuts that are looming March 1. Boehner has said any additional tax increases would be out of the question.
