52 Weeks of Broken Promises

Floor Speech

Mrs. WALORSKI. Madam Speaker, the American people have faced 52 weeks of broken promises.

The President who promised to unite the American people instead has pitted citizens against one another.

The President who promised to work with Americans across the political spectrum has prioritized a radical agenda that caters only to the extreme wing of his party.

The President who promised to protect the American people has left us vulnerable at the southern border and across the world.

The President who promised to build back better has only hindered America's economic recovery.

For a year, we have witnessed failure after failure. The American people have paid the price. Day after day, Hoosiers and Americans across the country experience the real ramifications of the Biden administration's policy agenda.

With inflation at a 40-year high, we are paying the price of the President's reckless spending during every trip to the grocery store and the gas station.

Despite spending trillions of dollars on the President's so-called rescue plan, we are facing escalating supply chain bottlenecks and workforce shortages with no end in sight.

Thanks to the Biden administration's open border policy, every town across America is a border town. As illicit drugs pour across the open southern border, including a 1,000 percent increase of fentanyl last year, every neighborhood is at risk.

While Democrats work to defund the police, Americans are facing dangerous crime surges in cities all across the country.

In the end, it all comes down to control. If you don't want to get the vaccine, you are fired. If you dare to ask what your children are learning in school, you are labeled a domestic terrorist.

This is America under 52 weeks of Joe Biden's leadership. The American people deserve better.
