Washington, DC – Following President Joe Biden’s joint address to Congress, U.S. Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) issued the statement below on President Biden’s remarks and the unveiling of the American Family Plan which would make significant federal investments in education, child care, combatting the climate crisis, and more.
“For a year our nation has been in a long, dark winter, and thanks to Georgia, morning is on the horizon. Now, we are finally starting down the road to recovery. I’ve been proud of the work we’ve done in Congress to help Georgians recover and move past the public health and economic pains of this once-in-a-century pandemic, and I was excited to hear the President talk about how we’re going to keep building on these policies and investments to keep our state and nation moving forward.
“From passing substantive policing reform to securing eligible Americans’ right to vote, and making needed federal investments in clean energy jobs, universal pre-K, affordable health care and child care, sustainable infrastructure and more, I’m very encouraged by how President Biden and Vice President Harris are working with Congress to deliver bold solutions that will help families, workers, veterans, and communities prosper in the 21st century. And as we look ahead to the next 100 days and beyond, I can’t wait to continue our work together to lead Georgia—and our nation—into a more peaceful and thriving future.”
