American families are facing a host of crises at home, and democracy is taking a beating abroad. Tonight, I hope President Biden will outline a clear plan to address these many challenges and come up with answers that we can work on together in a bipartisan way.

WASHINGTON – Today on the floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed tonight’s State of the Union Address and what he would like to hear from President Biden on the many crises affecting Texans. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found here.

“This evening President Biden will have a chance to provide his State of the Union message.”

“The American people are facing the failures of President Biden's domestic policies here at home. Families are being battered by the worst inflation in 40 years.”

“Business owners too have been hit with a double-whammy as supply chain issues make it more difficult and more costly to produce, sell, and ship their products.”

“Wage growth is still being outpaced by inflation, meaning that for the average American family, their purchasing power is shrinking, not growing, because of inflation.”

“I'd like to also hear the President's strategy to address another crisis, and that's the crisis at our southern border.”

“We need a concrete plan to address this chaos and ensure that migrants are treated fairly and humanely in accordance with U.S. law.”

“Communities across the country are worried about alarming increases in violent crime.”

“This is the price that you pay for such misguided efforts as defunding the police. The American people are paying attention, as you would expect.”

“American families are facing a host of crises at home, and democracy is taking a beating abroad. Tonight, I hope President Biden will outline a clear plan to address these many challenges and come up with answers that we can work on together in a bipartisan way.”

“The American people deserve to hear their President explain his plan to address each of these looming challenges, and I hope he doesn't let them down.”
