Tuberville Responds to Biden’s State of the Union Address

“The divide between President Biden’s big-government view of our country and the conservative vision for our potential has never been wider.”

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) released the following statement after attending President Biden’s State of the Union address:

“It’s hard for President Biden to address the weakened State of our Union when he doesn’t seem to be living in the difficult reality he’s created. Americans can’t afford their utilities or groceries, don’t feel safe in their communities, and are villainized for their views by a president who promised to unite us. Not only did the president fail to offer solutions tonight, he showed he doesn’t even seem to understand the problems. Instead, he just paid lip service to the same progressive priorities that have failed time and time again.”

“The divide between President Biden’s big-government view of our country and the conservative vision for our potential has never been wider. Republicans believe in a union that protects liberty, creates opportunity, and gets people back on their feet. We have a vision to make our country more free, more secure, and more affordable. As we saw tonight, President Biden doesn’t share that vision. However, because I speak with hardworking people every day who want to help turn our country around, I still believe America’s best days lie ahead of her. Those days will come when we elect a president who actually believes in American greatness and is capable of delivering results.”

Prior to attending the address, Senator Tuberville released a video statement in which he explained his hope to see President Biden use the speech to lay out plans to address the inflation, crime, and border crises created by the current administration’s policies.

Senator Tommy Tuberville represents Alabama in the United States Senate and is a member of the Senate Armed Services, Agriculture, Veterans’ Affairs, and HELP Committees.
