Rep.Veasey Pre-SOTU Message:

Press Release
"We're in the Majority Now, That Means We Have Priorities We Want Met For the American People"

“In the majority, our priority is to fight for middle class families. We can achieve this by improving infrastructure, expanding Medicare, fighting against climate change, and passing lasting voting rights reforms, so everyone can have a voice in their democracy.

Tonight’s speech will be an attempt by President Trump to create goodwill after he led the longest government shutdown in American history. He’ll try to convince Democrats in Congress to support his border wall, his attempts to take away healthcare coverage, and his tax cut on the wealthiest Americans.

That’s not going to happen.This speech is all smoke and mirrors to cover up the ever looming Russia investigation. 

Over the last two years, the President’s rank disregard for working Americans has squandered any credibility he ever had. The bottom line is that two thirds of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction. 

What matters is Trump’s actions over the next two weeks to keep the government open, not the razzle dazzle performance we’re in for tonight.”
