WASHINGTON, D.C.— Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) released a statement following President Joe Biden’s Wednesday address to a Joint Session of Congress:
“Tonight, President Biden outlined his plans to radically change America and push us farther down the path of socialism. The enormous federal programs he proposed will raise taxes, increase our Nation’s dependence on the welfare state, and further centralize control in Washington, D.C. He spoke of bipartisanship and discussion, yet over and over again, Republicans in Congress have been blocked from participating in an open, transparent debate to speak up for our constituents.
“Even more telling was that President Biden’s remarks were completely void of any mention of the humanitarian disaster on our southern border. Yet again, he completely brushed off the real suffering our communities are undergoing as a result of his administration weakening our border and incentivizing illegal immigration.
“I will continue doing what’s right for the people in the 11th District of Texas, who understand that this country is the best Nation in the world, and no one knows better how to care for those in our communities than those who live and work here.
“We must stand firm in protecting our freedoms for our children and future generations.”
