WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) released the following statement after attending President Biden’s State of the Union address.

“As innocent men, women, and children fight for their lives in the streets of Ukraine, President Biden tonight claimed that “we were ready.” Americans know the truth: This Administration unleashed a failed foreign policy strategy that only enabled the evil that is Vladimir Putin. I urge President Biden to impose tighter sanctions on Russia, supply more aid to Ukraine, and unlock the full power of American energy independence.

“Despite what we heard tonight, the real state of our union is this: Skyrocketing inflation, rising crime, a humanitarian crisis and security threat at our southern border, supply chain gridlock, unconstitutional government overreach, a growing national debt, and weakness on the world stage.

“Once again, President Biden’s agenda fails to meet the ongoing threats to the safety, security, and prosperity of Utahns in the Fourth District, Americans across the nation, and our allies around the world.”
