Congressman André Carson (IN-07) released this statement following President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address.
“Tonight, President Biden made it clear: Don’t bet against the American people. He laid out a plan to build a better America from the bottom up, create an economy that rewards work – not wealth, and strengthen America’s role in protecting democracy around the world.
“I share the President’s vision, and I hope my fellow Hoosiers recognize how much he’s already proven his ability to get results for all Americans. In a little over a year since President Biden took office, we’ve enacted historic legislation like the American Rescue Plan and the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. We’re leading the global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, and working strategically with the international community to strongly rebuke Russia’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine.
“Many challenges are ahead, but I’m grateful for the steady, strong leadership we have in President Biden and Vice-President Harris. Through good times and bad, they’ve never lost faith in the American people, or our ability to achieve incredible things when we remain united. Their ascent from humble backgrounds to the Presidency and Vice-Presidency proves what’s possible in this country, and they demonstrate their commitment to paying that forward every day. I look forward to continuing to work with this administration to ensure equality, justice, and opportunity for all Hoosiers.”
