Rep. Austin Scott Responds to Biden's State of Union Address
February 7, 2023
WASHINGTON, D.C.-- U.S. Representative Austin Scott (GA-08) today responded to President Joe Biden's State of the Union Address.
“Americans are feeling pain at the gas pump and the grocery store while they struggle to provide for their families amid record inflation, and the President is pretending that our economy is healthy and that he is open to bipartisan solutions to his many crises,” Scott said.
“The President has never been open to bipartisan solutions. He spent $3 trillion in the last 24 months without a single Republican vote. Now the national debt is out of control, our border is overrun by crime and more illegal immigrants than five times the population of my district, and our national security is at risk from dangerous adversaries like the CCP,” he continued.
“Georgians and all Americans deserve the truth and an administration willing to admit the problems they’ve created. My Republican colleagues and I are working in the House to restore our nation's security, integrity, and economy, and we urge the President to work with us."
Scott is serving as Vice Chair of the House Agriculture Committee for the 118th Congress. He is also a Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and the House Armed Services Committee (HASC).
