U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, tonight released the following statement after President Trump’s Joint Address to Congress:     

“President Trump’s address was a focused, optimistic vision for the future of our country. He offered common ground on goals we can all agree on such as creating American jobs, making needed investments in our infrastructure, delivering for our veterans, and rebuilding our healthcare system. I also fully support the president’s call to safely speed approvals for life-saving drugs and devices which is exactly what our groundbreaking 21st Century Cures Act does. As we move forward, I continue to believe we are better served by working together. My hope is that we will see more bipartisan cooperation so that we can get the job done for the American people.”
