At the State of the Union, we heard President Biden attempt to blame everyone from corporations to the opposing party for the issues Americans are facing. 

But the reality is the only person he has to blame is himself.

The one question that everyone should be asking themselves following this speech is: Are you better off than where you were three years ago?

The resounding answer I hear from North Carolinians is no.

We are not better off with the crippling inflation we see every time we go to the grocery store.

We are not better off with a raging crisis at the border that was caused by this administration’s failed policies.

We are not better off with a commander-in-chief who abandoned our allies in Afghanistan.

We are not better off with weak-on-crime policies that make Americans in cities feel less safe.

We are not better off with a President who has allowed the far-left to call the shots for the last 3 years.

While we have been able to find some areas of common ground, the unfortunate reality is that no amount of bipartisan cooperation can overcompensate for a President’s lack of leadership and an abundance of failed policies.

Americans know that our great nation can do better. And with a change in direction, we will do better.
