Tuberville on President Biden’s State of the Union Address

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s State of the Union address:

“The State of the Union was the perfect opportunity for President Biden to assert leadership that has been sorely lacking since he took office. Families across the nation were watching and waiting for the President to address the issues keeping them up at night. Americans deserve a plan to combat rising prices and secure our borders. They deserve answers about the withdrawal from Afghanistan and the Americans who were stranded there. And they deserve a commitment to regain America’s energy independence after it was completely undermined by the president’s embrace of far-Left climate policies.

“Tonight, these real-world problems were willingly overlooked by President Biden, who instead focused on ways to pull our country farther Left. For example, he touted an infrastructure package that will spend more on his radical climate agenda than on repairing our roads and bridges. This moment required strong leadership and accountability. President Biden failed to deliver.
