WASHINGTON, DC (February 7, 2023) — Today, Congresswoman Valerie Foushee (NC-04) released the following statement on President Biden’s State of the Union Address to Congress and the American people.

“Tonight, President Biden delivered a message filled with hope and optimism for our nation,” said Congresswoman Valerie Foushee. “In the last two years under President Biden’s steady leadership, he has delivered historic bipartisan accomplishments including the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, the Honoring Our PACT Act, and the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. During his time in office, we have also seen numerous economic milestones from record-breaking job growth to the lowest unemployment rate in half a century.

“However, President Biden made it clear: our work remains unfinished. Our country is at an inflection point, and it is critical for us to work together to build a stronger America. We must continue to put the American people first and lower costs for working families, expand access to healthcare, invest in our nation’s infrastructure, protect our voting rights and our reproductive rights, tackle the climate crisis, and make our communities safer. Together, we have accomplished great things, and together, we can continue to build a better America for all.”
