WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump delivered his first joint address to Congress:

“Tonight, President Trump effectively laid out his bold vision for renewing the American spirit. For too long, elected leaders have been content with maintaining the status quo while refusing to take on the real challenges affecting our country. The president made it clear in his speech tonight that those days are over. It is time to get down to the business of delivering meaningful results for all more excuses.

“I am more encouraged than ever that the Trump Administration has the courage to lead on meaningful issues mentioned tonight including healthcare reform, securing our southern border and restarting the American economy. President Trump has proven to be a once-in-a-lifetime leader who isn’t afraid to take on the traditional burdens that have plagued the D.C. swamp.  I am committed to supporting the president’s agenda to make America great again and will lead from my position in the House to ensure we fulfill that promise.”
