Larson Statement on Biden Address to Joint Session of Congress
Hartford, CT – Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after President Joe Biden’s address to the Joint Session of Congress:
“After just 99 days in office, President Biden has already made significant progress in combatting COVID and getting relief to Americans. His American Rescue Plan is the most significant piece of legislation since the New Deal. It has put vaccines in arms, money in people’s pockets, kids back in the classroom, people back in jobs, and is providing relief to our communities.
“Tonight, the President spoke about what’s next. The American Jobs plan would put Americans back to work and invest in transformational infrastructure projects that will fix the mistakes of the past and prepare for the future, like the Hartford 400 plan.
“The newly-announced American Families Plan would be a historic investment in education and child care. It would make education affordable from pre-k to college, provide families with economic security (including enacting paid family and medical leave), and so much more. This is once in a generation plan to move our country forward.”
