Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on President Biden’s Address to a Joint Session of Congress:

“Tonight, the American people heard President Joe Biden deliver a unifying message of resilience, resolve and hope.  The President painted a portrait of how his Administration has made extraordinary progress For The People.  As the President said, ‘America is on the move again.  Turning peril into possibility.  Crisis into opportunity.  Setback into strength.’

“President Biden’s address laid out an ambitious, transformative vision for seizing this once-in-a-century opportunity for our economy to Build Back Better.  It does so by investing in the foundation of our nation’s strength: our workers and the middle class, which built America.  The bold investments of the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan will Build Back Better by putting children, women, workers and families first and by ensuring that every person in every zip code has the opportunity to succeed in the 21st century. 

“The Democratic Congress looks forward to working with the Biden-Harris Administration to enact this historic vision for lower health care costs, for bigger paychecks, for cleaner government, For The People.”
