Moskowitz: “The State of the Union is Strong, But More Work Remains”

Moskowitz Praises Biden’s Call for Bipartisanship and is Ready to Get to Work to Address the Debt Ceiling, Inflation, Gun Violence, and Cancer

Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-Florida) released the following statement after President Joe Biden delivered the State of the Union address:

“The State of the Union is strong, but more work remains. The American people heard a commitment tonight that Democrats will continue to put the needs of middle-class Americans first. I will proudly join President Biden and my Republican colleagues to work across the aisle and find bipartisan solutions to solve our countries problems.”

“President Biden spoke about his continued work of empowering American workers and businesses. Since the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, our country has made incredible economic progress and created millions of jobs for hardworking Floridians. There’s no denying inflation remains at the top of everyone’s mind – a problem worsened by supply chain issues. We all have felt the increased cost of goods, and with the debt ceiling on the cusp of default, we as a country must ensure we are responsible with our spending and the nation’s credit card. But tonight, President Biden reminded the American people that our work continues and that we will only be successful if we work together.”

“A week from today will be the 5th anniversary of the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, my high school. The horror of gun violence is one our community knows too well. Every child has a right to go to school and not be afraid they may not come home due to a school shooter. I and millions across Florida, would like to personally thank President Biden for making gun violence prevention a major priority in his address.”

“Having lost my dad to pancreatic cancer, it was moving to hear President Biden talk about the need for increased research and screening. Cancer does not discriminate and affects everyone no matter your political party. With bipartisan support for this cause, I believe it is within our capacity to reduce cancer deaths in the coming decade.”

“Tonight, President Biden laid out the tremendous progress that’s been made, but we know much work remains to be done. Together, we must find ways to build a better country for all Americans.”
