Poll:
What did you think of the GOP response?

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers from Eastern Washington said Republicans want to empower Americans, not the government, and to close the gap "between where you are and where you want to be."

READ: President Obama's 2014 State of the Union
 
The representative from Washington delivered the response following President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.
 
She said it's Obama's policies that are making life harder for Americans, and that under those policies "more Americans stopped looking for a job than found one." 

McMorris Rogers also said Obama's health care overhaul has led to canceled insurance coverage and patients unable to see their regular doctors.

She said the GOP believes "in a government that trusts people and doesn't limit where you finish because of where you started."
