Text of Biden's Address
Interested parties can find the Remarks of President Joe Biden – State of the Union Address as Prepared for Delivery at the White House Briefing Room.
The president kicked off with some words on Russia and Ukraine including a few words we should all agree with.
"Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks, but he will never gain the hearts and souls of the Ukrainian people. He will never extinguish their love of freedom."
On inflation, Biden noted "too many families are struggling to keep up with the bills. Inflation is robbing them of the gains they might otherwise feel."
"I get it. That’s why my top priority is getting prices under control." said the president.
No! He doesn't get it.
The rest of his speech was nothing but one plug after another for Build Back Better, which he says "I call it building a better America."
Curiously, he bragged about being "the only president ever to cut the deficit by more than one trillion dollars in a single year," even though that comes the largest deficit in history, trillion dollar deficits for as fart as the eye can seen and a plan that dramatically understates the deficit by at least a trillion more.
To attack inflation the president says "Tonight, I’m announcing a crackdown on these companies overcharging American businesses and consumers."
Excuse me for pointing out that oil futures are up, agricultural futures are up, metal futures are up, and lumber futures are up.
It's ridiculous to attempt to pin inflation on gouging. But he needs a scapegoat and found was as expected.
After attacking gougers Biden called for child tax credits, unionization, paycheck fairness, and a cornucopia of items 100% guaranteed to raise inflation.
On Covid, the president called for "free vaccines, treatments, tests, and masks."
"Of course, continuing this costs money. I will soon send Congress a request."
What a hoot: These "free" programs "cost money". Who coulda thunk?
Read the rest yourself. Or just tune into Elizabeth Warren.
It reads as if Warren and the extreme Progressive wing of the party wrote his speech.
The president is seriously out of touch and the polls all show it.
