Mullin Responds to President Biden’s State of the Union Address: “Oklahoma deserves better”

Today, U.S. Senator Markwayne Mullin released the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address.

“Once again, Joe Biden offers empty words, false promises, and no solutions for the many crises he has created,” said Senator Mullin. “Joe Biden ran on ‘unity’, but his last two years in office have been among the most divisive and destructive in history.”

“The fact is, Oklahomans are living the daily consequences of Joe Biden’s self-inflicted disasters; from skyrocketing grocery bills, gasoline prices, and home heating costs, to a record crime wave and open border disaster. Oklahoma deserves better than a failed president who deflects blame and doubles down on radical far-Left policies that have bankrupted our country. In the Senate, I’m fighting to lower costs, restore energy independence, secure the border, and protect our Oklahoma way of life.”
