Rep. Price Congratulates President Biden and Vice President Harris on Inauguration Day
WASHINGTON, DC (January 20, 2021) – Congressman David Price (NC-04) released a statement on the historic inauguration of our 46th President, Joseph R. Biden, and our Vice President Kamala D. Harris:
“Today, America can breathe a sigh of relief as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were sworn in to lead during this time of crisis,” said Congressman David Price. “Make no mistake – President Biden inherits not just one, but several crises of historic proportions as he enters office: the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic fallout, devastating climate change that threatens our future, persistent racial inequality, and rising anti-government extremism and white supremacist movements. Restoring America’s leadership and reputation both at home and abroad will require a whole of government approach. President Biden’s experiences – both personal and professional – have prepared him for this moment and we could not be in more capable hands.
“President Biden’s inaugural address today inspired hope, emphasized unity and our shared values, and represents a clear break from chaos toward steady, principled leadership. He has laid out an aggressive agenda to combat the virus, improve vaccination distribution, help struggling families, and pursue policies that create opportunity and shared prosperity for all our citizens, not just the privileged or well-connected. The Biden-Harris administration will chart a positive course for America as we Build Back Better, and I stand ready to help pass this agenda in Congress.”
