Washington – Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement after attending President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress:
“The policies President Biden has advanced in his first 100 days and outlined in this evening are bad for Wyoming and bad for America.
“The proposals he talked about would result in growing the size and scope of the federal government while requiring hardworking taxpayers in our state and across the country to send more of their income to Washington, D.C. The policies he endorsed were not standard liberal ideas, but reflected the fact that the far-left is now in control of the Democrat Party and they are committed to forcing through their plans to empower the federal government at the expense of the American people.
“He did not provide any specifics that would solve the border crisis that he created, doubled-down on the weak national security policies that will embolden our adversaries and make our country less safe, and vowed to continue his Administration’s heartless energy policies that will destroy jobs and livelihoods for families in Wyoming and across America.
“During the campaign and in his inaugural address, President Biden talked about unity and bipartisanship. It’s disappointing that in his first 100 days and again in his speech tonight, he has turned his back on that laudable goal to pursue an agenda that runs counter our shared conservative principles in Wyoming. I will fight back against these dangerous plans and always stand up for the interests of our state and for the constitutional values that we hold dear.”
