ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee delivered the national Tea Party's response Tuesday night to President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech. Lee said the President's policies are widening the gap between rich and poor, and said it's time for a new generation of leaders like himself and Senator Ted Cruz from Texas. (SOUNDBITE) SENATOR MIKE LEE, R-UTAH, SAYING: "Americans know in their hearts that something is wrong. Much of what is wrong relates to the sense that the 'American Dream' is falling out of reach for far too many of us. We are facing an inequality crisis - one to which the president has paid lip-service, but seems uninterested in truly confronting or correcting."
