biden-sou-2023MADISON, WI - Last night, US President Joe Biden delivered the State of the Union Address. He outlined our nation's progress under his administration and his agenda to keep us moving forward for the next two years. Representative Shelia Stubbs (D-Madison) released the following statement:

"President Biden was elected to lead our nation out of turmoil and recession, and I applaud the progress made by him and his administration in two short years. His priorities are our priorities, and he and his administration can be relied upon to continue dismantling regressive policies while bolstering and advancing the progressive policies that will sustain our momentum.

President Biden's plan for education would directly impact student outcomes with prekindergarten programming, increase wages so our schools can recruit and retain talented educators, and ease the strain on our pocketbooks by further reducing student debt. He is standing up for our seniors and veterans, reaffirming our commitment to Social Security and Medicare, capping drug costs, expanding psychiatric and behavioral health initiatives, and pushing to reinstate Roe v Wade protections.

"Tonight, we heard how he will grow our economy from the bottom up and middle out. He will rebuild our middle class with 'made in America' supply chains, eliminate excessive non-compete clauses, and protect unionization efforts. Consumer protection is on the docket with long-overdue action on excessive and hidden fees. President Biden reemphasized his commitment to safe communities with commonsense firearm restrictions and police reform to restore community trust in our dedicated law enforcement officers. And all of this will be funded by making the largest corporations and wealthiest Americans pay their fair share, finally dismantling bad policies left by the failed trickle-down economics experiment.  

"We can trust President Biden will continue the progress of the past two years and display our nation's resilience as we repair the damage done by years of uncertainty and regressive policies. I thank President Biden for prioritizing our everyday standard of living."
