President Biden Plans To Make Speech In Hudson Valley
U.S. Rep. Molinaro (NY-19) says Biden will be in the Hudson Valley on May 10 to make a political speech about the debt ceiling.
“Last month, the House of Representatives, with my support, passed legislation to lift the debt ceiling. President Biden can back this legislation or engage in good-faith, bipartisan negotiations to find common ground to avoid a default and bend the unsustainable rate of federal spending. So far, he has done neither. Instead, President Biden plans to leave negotiators behind in Washington and travel to the Hudson Valley to make a political speech," Molinaro stated.
Molinaro didn't say where in the Hudson Valley Biden will be making a speech. The White House hasn't answered Hudson Valley Post's request for comment about the visit.
"President Biden’s game of chicken is dangerous. Our financial system, Social Security & Medicare, veterans benefits, and checks for servicemembers are hanging in the balance because he is refusing to take action. President Biden needs to stop campaigning and start negotiating," Molinaro added.
