WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) released the following statement after attending President Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress:

“In President Biden’s address tonight, he laid out a policy wish list that he wants Americans to pay for through major tax hikes. This is not fair to hardworking Nebraska families, communities, and small businesses. The American people expect the president to keep his word, deliver on his inaugural promise of bipartisanship and unity, and work with a 50-50 Senate to build consensus.”
