Rep. Cartwright Statement on President Biden’s State of the Union Address

Today, U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright (PA-08) released the following statement following President Biden’s 2023 State of the Union Address. 

"President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address was a needed message of unity and progress that really hit home. Investments in infrastructure and advanced manufacturing and the reduction of prescription drug prices now coming online are going to make a difference for many Northeastern Pennsylvanians, especially seniors and working families.

Coming out of the pandemic, we’ve experienced an incredible two years of bipartisan successes for our country and for our district. Continuing to grow the economy and tackling inflation are the right focuses for the President and the Congress. The fact that we’ve created a record number of jobs is a great sign, but President Biden made it clear last night that there’s still more work to be done, and I agree with that view and approach.

Moving forward, I’m committed to building on the monumental achievements of the last Congress by making connections with my colleagues across the aisle and rolling up my sleeves to uplift Northeastern Pennsylvania and move our country forward.
