Congressman Yakym Statement on President Biden’s State of the Union address

Feb 07, 2023

Washington, D.C. – Tonight, Congressman Rudy Yakym (IN-02) issued the following statement in response to President Biden’s State of the Union address:  

“While I genuinely appreciate the opening gesture of goodwill, very little I heard from President Biden tonight suggests he is serious about turning the page from the failed, far-left playbook that he and his advisors have been running over the past two years.  

“Moreover, Hoosiers back home know their lived reality is much different – and much more difficult – than the rosy picture President Biden tried to paint tonight.   

“Prices are still too high, real wages are down, our southern border is wide-open, and our adversaries can smell blood in the water, something we just saw with this administration’s inexplicable failure to prevent a Chinese Communist Party surveillance balloon from traveling across our continent.  

“In the coming weeks and months Congress will be grappling with big questions on spending and our long-term security. Going forward I hope that President Biden will work with Republicans, put forward reasonable solutions, and prioritize Americans’ real needs over his party’s liberal agenda, something that unfortunately we didn’t see tonight.”
