WASHINGTON–In response to President Biden’s national address, Ways and Means Republican Leader Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement:
“It’s time to call it: President Biden’s call for unity has been an absolute fraud.
“Despite the success of five previous bipartisan bills totaling $3.5 trillion, Democrats hijacked relief efforts and rejected GOP efforts in this bill to get vaccines distributed even more widely, to strengthen child poverty funding, to reopen schools, to help people return to work, and to support struggling Main Street businesses. Yet tonight’s speech was all about how President Biden solved everything. This is unity?
“Every day since President Biden’s inauguration, he has allowed politics to divide the country, rather than honored his pledge to unify us. In a crisis, this is not the leadership we need—it’s partisanship we can do without.”
