Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address tonight:

“Time and time again, President Trump has failed America’s middle class. Tonight was no different. While the President may boast about low unemployment and a strong economy, millions of middle class Americans are struggling to make ends meet with stagnant wages and no help from his $1.5 trillion tax scam. He promised us better health care, but undermined pre-existing conditions protections and restricted Medicaid. He said he would drain the swamp, but appointed corrupt ex-lobbyists throughout his cabinet. Finally, I was especially caught off guard to hear President Trump preach the benefits of bipartisanship and profess to stand against bullying tonight. Here above all else, time and time again, he fails to lead by example.”
