Cline, Commenting On Inauguration, Says Biden's First-Day Agenda Will "Drag Our Country Backward"

Today, Congressman Ben Cline released the below statement following the inauguration of President Joe Biden.

 “I attended today's inauguration of President Joe Biden out of respect for the office of the presidency and to commemorate the peaceful transfer of power that has become a cornerstone of our American Republic,” Cline said.

"However, we must forge beyond this moment in history to meet the short and long-term challenges facing our country. As I have for the last two years, I will continue to support fiscal responsibility and reducing burdensome regulations, defeating the COVID-19 virus while getting Americans back to work and back in school, securing our borders, and supporting our brave men and women in uniform.

"After four years of progress, we cannot afford a third term of the Obama era’s failed policies. Already, the Biden Administration has announced a first-day agenda that will drag our country backward during a time in which our nation desperately needs to move forward. With Democrats controlling both chambers of Congress and the White House, I will continue to strongly advocate for the commonsense conservative values of the citizens of Virginia’s Sixth Congressional District."
