Republicans say President Barack Obama's second-term agenda will bring more tax increases and increase deficit spending. They're vowing to promote economic growth to help middle-class families find good jobs.

Republicans are responding to Obama's State of the Union address with fresh appeals to voters on the economy and promises to rein in federal spending with a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says in the Republican address that Obama should "abandon his obsession with raising taxes."

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman says Obama is promoting "the same big-government policies that have failed to get our economy up and running again."
