Los Angeles, CA – California Democratic Party Chair Rusty Hicks issued the following statement on President Joe Biden’s first address to Congress:
“Just a few months ago, we elected a president who leads with empathy, decency, and the profound belief in all of us. We elected a president who called upon the best in all of us. With that came the courage to measure ourselves not by the fear we’ve endured over the past year but the hope that we’ve restored within the last 100 days.
When President Biden took office, he promised the American people that help was on the way. Now, 100 days into his administration, Biden and Democrats have delivered on that promise. In his first 100 days, President Biden immediately acted to get America back on track. And on this road to recovery, he re-envisioned a democracy that could withstand the crisis that faces our nation.
Together, Democratic leaders worked to deliver real, tangible results by vaccinating 200 million Americans, rebuilding a better, fairer and stronger economy, providing direct relief to help working families, and reinvesting in our future by reducing child poverty.
Through the American Rescue Plan, the American Jobs Plan, and the American Families Plan, Democrats have made it clear that by standing together we can build an America that works for all of us.”
