WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pete Ricketts (R-NE) released the following video statement responding to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address:
“Hi, this is Pete Ricketts, Senator from the great state of Nebraska.
“Tonight, I listened to my first State of the Union address in person.
“As governor, we always worked to make sure state government was working for the people. That we did a great job delivering services, kept our expenses down, made sure we had a business-friendly environment so companies would invest, and all this would create jobs and opportunities for our families so they could enjoy the good life in our state.
“The Biden administration does not share that. They’ve got a bureaucracy that has run amuck. They’ve got runaway spending that is driving high inflation, making it difficult for families to make ends meet. They have not controlled our southern border, allowing millions of people across. And they’re making us more dependent on foreign energy.
“As your governor I fought for two years against this administration, and as your senator, I will continue to push back on an administration that is not in touch with American people.
“Thank you for this opportunity. God bless you all and God bless the great state of Nebraska.”
