AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress:
“As President Biden embarks on his 100th day in office, we are seeing hope return to the American people. The Biden-Harris administration is making it possible for millions of Americans to see their loved ones in person and return to school safely — thanks to their aggressive COVID-19 vaccine rollout, millions of checks in people’s pockets across the country, protections for workers and small businesses, and tireless efforts to stop the suffering people have experienced as a result of this pandemic.
“President Biden’s American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan will not only help get Americans back on their feet, but will invest heavily in the mechanisms for success for generations of Americans to come.
“President Biden is hitting milestone after milestone by vaccinating millions of Americans in record time and creating millions of good-paying union jobs, while helping parents get affordable childcare and cutting taxes for American families and the middle class. Biden is making it easier for students to pay for a quality college education, tackling climate change, fighting to end gun violence, and keeping true to his promise to make health care affordable and accessible for everybody.
“The Biden-Harris administration is accelerating America’s recovery and delivering real results for people across the nation. As Texas Democrats, we couldn’t be more proud of our president’s accomplishments, or to be part of this moment in which hope, health, justice and opportunity are finally returning to America.”
