Congressman Sires’ Statement on President Biden’s First Congressional Address
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Albio Sires (D-NJ) released the following statement after President Biden gave his first address to Congress:
“Yesterday, on his one hundredth day in office, President Biden addressed Congress for the first time and presented his plan to support and strengthen American families. His proposal, the American Families Plan, would build on the American Rescue Plan enacted in March to provide emergency relief for Americans due to the COVID-19 crisis, as well as his proposed American Jobs Plan to improve our nation’s infrastructure and boost our economy.
The American Families Plan will expand access to high-quality education, health care, child care, and family leave to give more hardworking Americans a shot at the American dream. It would also make the tax code fairer to help working- and middle-class families. President Biden’s bold vision will help American families thrive and move our nation forward. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House to advance the President’s plan for the benefit of all American families.”
