WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator JD Vance (R-OH) issued the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address:
“The result of Joe Biden’s term thus far has been widespread misery across the nation,” said Senator Vance. “Ohioans know we are worse off today than we were two years ago, and we know Joe Biden is responsible. Nothing the President said tonight will change this reality.
“At home, Ohio families are struggling to afford food, housing, and other basic necessities. Thousands of our fellow Americans have succumbed to the fentanyl epidemic as a result of Joe Biden’s open borders. President Biden’s war on oil and gas has caused energy costs to skyrocket, and violent crime plagues cities across the country. Abroad, Joe Biden has failed to protect the core national security interests of the United States. His incompetence led to tragedy in Afghanistan, war in Europe, and an emboldened Chinese Communist Party. The American people deserve so much better from our president, but we will never get that with Joe Biden in office.”
