WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) released the following statement after attending President Biden’s Address to a Joint Session of Congress.

“Tonight, we heard President Biden’s spin on his first 100 days in office, but nothing of his job-killing executive orders, the national security crisis at our border, or the largest tax increase in a generation,” said Owens. “The Democrats’ progressive pet projects and disastrous policies come at the expense of hardworking taxpayers and future generations. To truly restore the soul of our nation, the President must stop governing from the far left and start representing all Americans.”
