Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) issued the following statement marking the one-year mark of President Biden’s presidency and of Democrat, one-party rule in Washington:

“In one year, President Biden has turned our country back with soaring costs, empty shelves, punishing mandates, and a weakened America.

“Violent crime has soared and we have an uncontrolled border crisis that has led to nearly 2 million illegal immigrants pouring into our communities. His inept policies have led to Americans facing the highest inflation in 40 years. And his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan resulted in the deaths of 13 of our service members and hundreds of Americans abandoned in a country controlled by the Taliban.

“Meanwhile, Democrats in Congress have stood by and done nothing for the American people. Americans aren’t just frustrated, they are fed up and looking for change and an optimistic vision. We must end one-party rule in D.C. and get back to policies that get us off this destructive path and back to American prosperity.”
