ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

WASHINGTON – Senator Eric Schmitt released the following statement regarding President Biden’s State of the Union address:

“President Biden’s spin on the state of our union does not reflect the difficult reality Missouri families, farmers, ranchers, and small businesses face every day. High prices on necessary goods and services, a wide open southern border, and a Chinese spy asset flying in American airspace for days demonstrates the utter lack of leadership from the White House,” said Senator Eric Schmitt. “Joe Biden must take responsibility for his failures – budget gimmicks and empty promises don’t help the single mother working to provide for her kids, or the farmer that is struggling to keep his generational farm afloat. Make no mistake about it: Missourians are hurting because of Joe Biden’s policies.”
