“At President Biden’s inaugural address, I was encouraged by his words of bipartisanship. The President pledged to be a president for all Americans, but those words have fallen flat in his first 100 days.
The President’s rhetoric and mixed messaging have led to the unmitigated crisis at the southern border. He has threatened our economic rebound following the pandemic with unnecessary tax hike proposals that will drive businesses overseas and kill jobs. And he has abandoned the idea of unity to cater to the most liberal wing of the Democrat party.
Once again, tonight we heard a speech of lofty goals and calls for unity from President Biden. I agree with President Biden that we need to invest in infrastructure and support working families following the coronavirus pandemic. Republicans are eager to work with Democrats and the Biden Administration to help families, but we know that throwing trillions of dollars at government programs rife with mandates from Washington and raising taxes on job-creators won’t grow our economy or create good-paying jobs.
President Biden has time to make a course correction on his term of partisanship. I hope he is serious about compromising with Republicans to move our country forward.”
