Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) issued the statement following President Donald J. Trump's State of the Union address.
It is important to note that now – more than ever – is the time for the Administration to make a good faith effort to find common ground with Congress as we each outline our visions for the future of this country. No, I do not agree with President Trump on every policy or approach, but I have always been willing to come to the table in the name of bipartisanship.
As a proud member of the Problem Solvers Caucus, I stand ready to collaborate on efforts to expand affordable healthcare and lower prescription drug prices, protect senior citizens and working-class Americans, provide security for our nation’s veterans, and implement a mutually beneficial trade agreement with Canada and Mexico. We must set aside the divineness that has hampered our work and focus on addressing the very issues that the American people sent us here to resolve.
