It is delightful to see two powerful women behind the President for a State of the Union Address, I suspect for the first time in our history.
Thankfully the President’s agenda didn’t pass, because even members of his own party said enough is enough. Well, the American people share that view. Enough is enough. — Gov. Kim Reynolds
Actually, a good deal of President Biden’s agenda did pass — the America Cares Act and the infrastructure bill. Build Back Better hasn’t yet passed because nearly every Republican opposed it. Enough is enough is a platitude, not a policy. Tom Reed also used that phrase.
Last night, we heard a speech offering the government as the solution. America’s power rests in its people. I trust the people and therefore reject the heart of this speech. It is time to solve our problems through true leadership willing to work with both sides to achieve people-driven solutions to the serious issues facing our nation. — Rep. Tom Reed
Which Republicans are willing to work with both sides, Tom Reed doesn’t say. Tom’s rejection of President Biden’s speech in its entirety, doesn’t suggest “working with both sides,” nor has he often shown any willingness to do that himself.
The state of our nation and our world is much worse than it was one year ago. Virtually every major crisis our nation faces today has been caused or exacerbated by President Biden. — Rep. Claudia Tenney (who wants to represent NY-23)
A year ago, Covid was raging in part due to TFG’s incompetence and in part to Republican opposition to public health measures. Claudia Tenney, like Tom Reed, discounts the views of the majority of New Yorkers who certainly don’t hold President Biden responsible for every problem we face or believe that Republicans have a responsible platform.
