STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSMAN JOE MORELLE ON STATE OF THE UNION
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Joe Morelle released the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address.
“I am profoundly disappointed that rather than putting forth a vision to bring our country together and address the real issues facing working families, the President chose to hold a campaign rally in our nation’s Capital. The President failed to use the State of the Union address to demonstrate true leadership and to articulate a clear vision for our nation. Instead, he gave the American people lip service and platitudes.
“While the President is focused exclusively on the November election, my colleagues and I in the House of Representatives are taking action on the issues that matter most to everyday Americans: we’ve passed bold legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs; to keep our communities safe from the devastation of gun violence; to safeguard our planet from the effects of climate change; and to expand economic opportunity for all people. Whether Donald Trump chooses to join us in our efforts or not, we will continue working diligently to enact meaningful reform and deliver results for the American people.”
