U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today released the following statement on President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress:
“President Biden has made a habit of calling for bipartisanship and unity but doing just the opposite. Over the last 100 days, he and Speaker Pelosi have partnered to add trillions in government spending without Republican input while plotting massive tax hikes to pay for their progressive wish list.
“These actions have further divided the country, deepened our fiscal crisis, and put our economic recovery in jeopardy. Small businesses are struggling to hire workers because of enhanced unemployment benefits. Workers are bracing for job-killing taxes and regulations. Families are seeing rising prices at the gas pump and the grocery store.
“It’s time for the president to set aside partisan rhetoric and radical policies and begin working with Republicans to solve our nation’s many challenges.”
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Ranking Member of the House Ethics Committee.
