Tonight, Representative David Kustoff (TN-08) released the following statement after attending President Joe Biden's first official State of the Union address to Congress and the American people.
"This evening, we heard from a president who has failed the American people. Just one year after President Biden took the oath of office, inflation has reached its highest rate in 40 years, fentanyl is flowing across our open border, and the crime rate across our nation has skyrocketed. In addition, our global security is at great risk due to Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, which highlights the need for increasing America's energy independence. The American people are hurting," said Congressman Kustoff. "Instead of talking about how he and his administration are working to fix these crises, President Biden doubled down on his unsuccessful policies. I am working with my Republican colleagues to address the challenges that people in West Tennessee face every day."
