Houlahan: President Biden Delivered Clear Message About Progress and Hope During State of the Union Address

  • Chrissy and Matrie

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) issued the following statement in response to President Biden’s State of the Union Address:


“President Biden did a great job articulating his vision for our nation’s future, which comes in stark contrast to the vision, or lack thereof, of the former President,” said Houlahan. “President Biden’s message was clear about the progress we’ve made but also met Americans where they are – acknowledging the need for continued efforts to protect our freedoms, grow the middle class, and move the country forward. I was glad to see he talked extensively about freedoms and democracy and the importance of strengthening our national security here at home and around the world. Most importantly, he laid out a comprehensive plan to build an inclusive economy from the bottom up and the middle out, which, again, comes in contrast to the failed notion of trickle-down economics. Ultimately, we heard a message of hope rather than despair.”


Houlahan is an Air Force veteran, an engineer, a serial entrepreneur, an educator, and a nonprofit leader. She represents Pennsylvania’s 6th Congressional District, which encompasses Chester County and southern Berks County. She serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. She is the recipient of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Abraham Lincoln Leadership for America Award which “recognizes members who demonstrate the bipartisan leadership and constructive governing necessary to move our country forward” and the Congressional Management Foundation’s 2022 Democracy Award for best Constituent Services in Congress.
