Press Release – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., released the following statement last night regarding President Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress.
“Today I heard the president deliver a message about what we as a nation can achieve. Too often in the heat of political battle, we lose track of the bigger picture and the commonalities that bind us. That could mean safety for our family and communities; good jobs to support our loved ones; or the opportunity to make the most of our lives. As Americans, we not only share many of the same goals and desires, we share the responsibility inherent in our democratic system of government to work together to ensure those dreams are within reach."
“The president’s speech wasn’t just about what we hope for, it was also about taking action. He laid out an agenda aimed at addressing real problems for real people. The president has a large spotlight which he can shine on the major problems that need to be fixed, but Congress tackles the details of how to fix it. We need to stay true to our values and beliefs and remember that no person, or party, has all the answers. Governing is the art of coming together to find solutions and common ground. I look forward to working with my colleagues and the president to craft those solutions in order to ensure our country is on the path to a better future.”
