WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mike Bost (R-IL) issued the following statement in response to President Biden’s State of the Union Address to Congress this evening:   
“Joe Biden’s speech tonight was less a State of the Union than it was a State of Delusion," said Bost. "Biden took a victory lap for an economy the American people have no faith in and celebrated a legislative agenda that’s already failed. He led off his speech asking for more money to secure Ukraine’s border; but he made securing America’s border his 17th priority, soon after Snickers bars and fixing online concert ticket sales. 
"This was Biden’s last big chance to convince the American people he deserved four more years in the White House. Instead, all he offered was divisive political rhetoric, class warfare, and clear proof that he’s completely out of touch with the priorities of Southern Illinois’ working families.”
