Cortez Masto Statement on State of the Union Address

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address:

“Instead of using the State of the Union as an opportunity to unite the country and bring people together, President Trump delivered more broken promises and lies. In the days and weeks before tonight’s address, President Trump announced plans to rip health care away from millions of Americans, expand his discriminatory Muslim ban, and threaten seniors’ hard-fought Social Security benefits. While the President touted economic growth under his Administration, too many Nevadans are still struggling to make ends meet. He has failed to keep his word to working families; he has actively pursued policies that would hurt them. President Trump has also sought to pay for his deficit-exploding tax giveaway to the rich and his ‘virtually impenetrable’ yet windblown border wall on the backs of hardworking Americans. The American people can see past President Trump’s empty words.”
