WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Mike Flood issued a statement reacting to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address delivered to a joint session of Congress earlier this evening.
“While President Biden heralded calls for bipartisanship tonight, his platitudes won’t be enough to rally Americans dealing with an economy in crisis and concerned about an increasingly aggressive China. Over the last two years, working families have been struggling with record inflation fueled by a Biden-led spending spree. The President gave no sign that he’s ready to rein in spending as he used this address to push for higher taxes. And over the last week, the world watched as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) challenged America’s sovereignty. While the President seems to recognize that there is a problem, he has yet to present any kind of a realistic plan to unite our country to compete with China in a tense environment. In the coming months, President Biden will need to change course and buck the members of the radical Left in his own party if he hopes to bring both sides together to control spending and take on the threat of the CCP.”
Congressman Flood is a member of the House Financial Services Committee.
