SENATOR SHELLEY MOORE CAPITO (R-W.Va.): “Listening to the president’s speech and the vice president – that they want to slough it off on the pandemic, and certainly that was a devastating event. But we’re living in the here and now, and I don’t think that is where they [the Biden administration] are.”
SENATOR KATIE BRITT (R-Ala.): “Parents and families are sitting around the kitchen table worrying about how they’re going to make ends meet in the face of crushing inflation.”
SENATOR ROGER WICKER (R-Miss.): “Under his watch, there have been nearly five million illegal border crossings. There is no control. Our border patrol is overwhelmed and has no support from this administration.”
SENATOR STEVE DAINES (R-Mont.): “I’ll tell you what – if he wants to work with Republicans, we welcome that invite.”
SENATOR JAMES LANKFORD (R-Okla.): “The president missed some good opportunities to be able to outline some of the plan for what he’s going to do to be able to actually deal with issues like the economy, and how he’s going to deal with issues like immigration. But, we’ve got to continue to be able to find ways to be able to get the things done that need to be done for the nation.”
