WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued the following statement in response to the State of the Union address delivered by President Biden:

“President Biden’s attempt to sell us a rosy picture of the state of our union will not work because the American people are not fooled by the President’s blame shifting on high prices, crime, or border security.  We know that President Biden’s leadership and policies not only put their personal lives on edge, but also embolden our adversaries.

“I’m disappointed that President Biden has no intention of abandoning his failed policies, but will instead carry on with his agenda of more taxes, more radical regulations, and even more federal government intrusion into the lives of every American.  The state of our union under this President is at risk and no amount of deflection and campaign rhetoric will change that fact.  The American people deserve better.”

Earlier Thursday, Hyde-Smith delivered a pre-State of the Union floor speech focused on how Biden’s failed border policies are endangering Americans across the country.  The video and text of her remarks are available here.
