Jesse Jensen Response to State of the Union Address

Bonney Lake, WA – Jesse Jensen, former Army Ranger, combat veteran, and candidate for Congress in Washington’s 8th District today released the following response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address.

“The state of our union has been weakened under the failed leadership of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. Inflation is at its highest levels in 40 years and causing undue financial hardship to working-class Americans and seniors. Our brave law enforcement personnel have been demonized to the point where criminals feel empowered to turn our entire state into a lawless dystopia previously reserved for liberal bastions like San Francisco. Two short years ago we were energy independent, but under the energy policies of Joe Biden, costs have skyrocketed and have made us dependent on a Russian thug who is currently threatening a nuclear war.

“Joe Biden has also failed on the global stage. We no longer have a southern border. Biden’s weakness has emboldened adversaries ranging from the Taliban in Afghanistan to war criminals like Vladimir Putin in Russia. Biden’s weakness becomes obvious when the brave volunteers of groups like Task Force Argo have to do the government’s job overseas while thugs like Putin plan invasions of sovereign nations like Ukraine.

“It is no coincidence that all of this has happened since Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer took full control of our federal government 13 months ago. Collectively, they have failed to rise to the occasion to meet this critical moment in history. Their failures underscore the importance of Republicans winning back control of Congress in the upcoming midterm elections.”
