SOTU Fentanyl Fumble Draws Response All the Way from Texas


AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement Tuesday night in response to President Joe Biden's State of the Union address: 

"Tonight, President Joe Biden illustrated that states like Texas are leading the nation, and Washington follows. He announced initiatives to lessen the flow of deadly fentanyl into this country, yet Texas has been fighting this surge ever since he opened our southern border to the dramatically increased influence of Mexican drug cartels. In fact, Texas has seized enough fentanyl to kill every man, woman, and child in the United States. Texas also announced an effort last year to educate the public on the dangers of this horrific drug through our One Pill Kills campaign. Americans deserve decisive action from our federal government to stem the tide of this deadly drug entering our country, but in order to truly solve the fentanyl crisis, President Biden needs to do what Texas has been trying to do in his absence – secure our southern border. Once again, President Biden proved that Texas leads, and Washington follows."

Republican members of Congress lashed out at President Biden during his State of the Union address Tuesday night after he commented on the case of a 20-year-old girl killed by a fentanyl overdose. 

“It’s your fault!” one Congress member could be heard yelling from the GOP side of the aisle after the 80-year-old president noted that thousands of Americans are being killed every year by the deadly drug — which many blame his administration for letting slip through the southern border.

This evil Chiden administration could care less about stopping drugs from entering/killing Americans.

Just like illegals they are allowing in this country.

You fools who voted for this evil  look as stupid as you are.
