Wagner Statement On President Trump’s State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON - Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO-02) released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union Address:
I agree with the President that Republicans and Democrats need to put politics aside and work together to better our nation. There is broad, bipartisan support to keep the government open and secure our border. We can and will join together and pass legislation to provide for paid family leave, rebuild our infrastructure, protect those with preexisting conditions, and lower healthcare costs for everyday Americans. The President is committed to reaching across the aisle in support of these critical priorities and I will work with him and my colleagues in the House to bolster our national security, ensure our economy remains prosperous for all, and make life better for Americans in communities around the country. Our economy is strong and we are clearly on the right path forward, but the gridlock that has grown to define American politics must be broken so we can do even better.
