At State of the Union, Biden has 3 big failures he must own when he addresses nation

newNow you can listen to Fox News articles!

President Joe Biden will deliver the annual State of the Union address on Tuesday night. All three branches of government — and plenty of television cameras — will be on hand for one of our nation’s most sacred traditions.

The president is likely to subject the nation to his usual misleading explanations of his administration’s many failings. Sadly, at every stage of his tenure, Biden has bragged, bragged, and tried to deflect blame. Biden called inflation “temporary” and his surrender to the Taliban “an extraordinary achievement.” There hasn’t been a presidential failure — no matter how embarrassing or how disastrous — that he hasn’t called a victory.

The American people see through it. Every time they go to the grocery store, they see the face of inflation. Every time they turn on the evening news, they see the fentanyl crisis and the staggering number of crimes. The American people don’t want any more cheap talk. We want real solutions that make a difference in people’s lives.

No matter what Biden says Tuesday night, the truth is.

The Democrats had complete control of Washington for two years. In those two years alone, they increased government spending by $3 trillion. Because of them, the national debt reached $31 trillion, more than our entire economy. Under Biden we have seen the worst inflation in 40 years, the worst energy crisis in 40 years and the worst border crisis in American history.

The American people are focused on three issues right now, and these are the three biggest failures that Biden doesn’t want to talk about.

1. Biden’s Inflation Crisis

The first is inflation. Prices have risen more than 13 percent overall under Biden. As a result, the American people have effectively lost one out of every eight dollars in their pockets and savings accounts. A recent study shows that the average family is lost In prices over $10,000 Since Joe Biden took office.

2. Biden’s Energy Crisis

Inflation is largely driven by Biden’s second major crisis — and that is his war on American energy. Since the day Biden took office, he has imposed restrictions on US energy production.

America is now producing 2 million barrels less oil per day than we should. As a result, the cost of heating oil has increased by two-thirds, the cost of natural gas has increased by half, and the cost of electricity is over 20 cents on the dollar. Those costs are rising, and more than 20 million American households are now behind on their utility bills.

3. Biden’s border crisis

The third major issue of our time is the southern border crisis. This is the worst event in history. On Biden’s first day in office, he halted all deportations, halted construction of the wall, and ended the policy of remaining in Mexico. Since then our southern border has been 2,000 miles. More than four and a half million illegal immigrants have been caught crossing the border since Joe Biden took office. Border Patrol agents have also seized enough drugs to kill every man, woman and child in this country.

Biden didn’t want to talk about any of those crises Tuesday night, and especially not his role in creating them. Yet he cannot escape from them. These are the top issues facing the American people every day, and they’ve all been created by the president and his Democrat allies.

In November, the American people elected a Republican House as an emergency brake to end one-party rule in Washington, DC. A Republican House will prevent the next two years from being like the last two.

Under Biden we have seen the worst inflation in 40 years, the worst energy crisis in 40 years and the worst border crisis in American history.

Two in three Americans say our nation is on the wrong track, and only four in 10 approve of the job Biden is doing in office. Now is the time for Democrats to listen to the American people and step in.

Senate Republicans are united behind the people’s priorities. We want to curb reckless spending, reduce American energy consumption and secure the border. If the Democrats are willing to do this, we will work with them. Yet if the Democrats continue to drag our country to the extreme left, we will do everything we can to stop them.

I will respectfully listen to the President’s speech on Tuesday night. Yet in this time of crisis, the American people are not looking for empty words read from a teleprompter. We want serious action on inflation, border security, and public safety. It’s time for Joe Biden to stop the blame game and stop the radical left-wing policies that are hurting this country.
