Washington, April 28, 2021 | S.K. Bowen (202-225-3501)
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) released the following statement after President Joe Biden’s address to the Joint Session of Congress.
“Going into President Biden’s address, I wanted to hear about how he is going to work with Republicans in Congress on bipartisan solutions and unite the country,” said Guthrie. “Congress is divided by very small margins, which gives President Biden a golden opportunity to negotiate and advance bipartisan policies. However, the president’s talk about bipartisanship has largely not been put into action during his first 100 days in office. Speaker Pelosi and Democrats in Congress need to be spending less time and effort on finding new power grabs and more time on working with Republicans to address issues our country is facing today. The American people want us to work together, and I hope the president’s remarks tonight serve as an inflection point on how Congress and the Biden administration work together.”
