Congressman Lamborn's Statement on President Biden's First 100-Days
Washington, D.C.- This evening, President Joe Biden, whose first 100-days in office have been nothing more than broken promises, radical policy, and empty rhetoric, delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress.
Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement:
"The first 100 days of Biden's presidency have been marked by outrageous spending and the creation of an entirely new crisis at our Southern Border. The Democrats are attempting to override the filibuster, stack our Supreme Court, and make Washington D.C. the 51st State. Through all this, Biden has done nothing to stall the radical left's efforts and has governed in a totally hyper-partisan fashion. The only positive thing going on in our Union is that the full effects of Operation Warp Speed and the Trump vaccine are in full swing. Biden's next priority is just as flawed. His "infrastructure" plan is full of unrelated liberal priorities, with only 6% of funding going to roads and bridges. Moving forward, we must stop the reckless spending and halt the wave of illegal immigrants at our southern border."
