WASHINGTON—Today, Rep. Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01), the Blue Dog Coalition’s Co-Chair for Communications and Outreach, issued the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s address to the joint session of Congress:
“As our nation builds back from the pandemic, we commend President Biden’s focus on investing in our future. We must pursue bipartisan, bicameral results that create good-paying jobs, strengthen the middle class, invest in rural America, and ensure everyone pays their fair share and gets a fair shake. Above all else, we must restore faith in government, and that requires bold pragmatism and a focus on pursuing the policies that can become law. Messaging bills that cannot pass both chambers do not put people back to work, do not help open small businesses, and do not lower the costs of health care. The American people want results over rhetoric, and the Blue Dogs are ready to help deliver those much-needed results.”
