Congressman Paul Broun (R-Ga.) is among a handful of members who have decided not to attend President Obama's speech before Congress tonight.
Instead, Rep. Broun will watch the speech from his office, where he'll hold a "Twitter town hall" with his constituents to discuss the president's plan and to receive feedback from his district about how to create jobs in America.
Representative Broun joins Carol Costello on American Morning today to explain why he's not attending the president's speech despite concerns over partisan gridlock in Congress.
"The thing is, the president doesn't listen," Rep. Broun tells Costello. "This is just another campaign speech. He's just focusing on the 2012 election and that's what it's all about. We're seeing the same proposals of big government spending. It's failed over and over again."
