Congresswoman Ann Wagner on Biden’s Radical Speech
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO) released the following statement on President Joe Biden’s speech to a Joint Session of Congress:
“Joe Biden had an opportunity to reach across the aisle to Republicans today and find bipartisan solutions to the problems our nation is facing. There is an unprecedented crisis at the border and a pandemic that is still harming our communities, but instead of working to fix these major issues, he decided to go all in on radically liberal policies.
“Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress are using every tool at their disposal to increase government control over our lives and raise your taxes, and this speech tonight just proved it. I am here in Congress to work for stronger borders, get our economy reopened, and make sure precious, innocent babies are protected. Once again, President Biden pushed a liberal agenda that is simply out of step with the average American.
“These big government mandates coming from the Biden Administration are going to hurt our fellow citizens, not help them. Every day I talk to Missourians who want nothing to do with the socialist policies the Democrats are proposing, and I am working to make sure these radical ideas don’t irreparably alter our conservative, Midwest values we hold so dear.”
