Amanda Adkins Responds to Biden’s State of the Union Address
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. –Amanda Adkins, Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in Kansas’ Third District, released the following statement in response to Joe Biden’s first State of the Union address:
“The Biden Administration has been riddled with crises, both at home and abroad. Poor energy policies have caused Kansas gas prices to increase by $1.20/gallon since Biden took office and record inflation will cost the average Kansas family nearly $4,500 this year,” said Adkins. “Joe Biden also continues to ignore the border crisis despite record breaking illegal immigration and record overdose deaths, including a 51% surge in Kansas, fueled by fentanyl that comes primarily through Mexico.”
“The increased cost of goods and services impacting Kansas families is due in large part to reckless government spending supported by Sharice Davids. Joe Biden also tried to resell his Build Back Better mess which, according to the Congressional Budget Office, would contribute another almost $3 trillion to the federal deficit over ten years. Last night, Biden promised that the state of our union is strong. Unfortunately, it is clear that the state of our union is much weaker after a year of leadership from Democrats in Congress and the White House,” Adkins stated.
