State of the Union Response

State of the Union Response

The three most important topics President Joe Biden discussed in last night’s State of the Union address were the Economy, Ukraine, and Covid.


Biden said, “When we use taxpayers dollars to rebuild America, we are going to do it by buying American. Buying American products, supporting American jobs… everything from the deck of an aircraft carrier to the steel on highway guardrails are made in America from beginning to end.”


This is important because America needs to buy American goods to increase GDP and to help our economy grow. I agree because our country needs to increase GDP to have the best economy in the world.


Biden said, “Six days ago, Russia’s Vladimir Putin sought to shake the foundations of the free world thinking he could make it bend to his menacing ways. But he badly miscalculated. He thought he could roll into Ukraine and the world would roll over. Instead, he met a wall of strength he never imagined. He met the Ukrainian people.”


This is important because it shows Biden is standing with Ukraine. I agree because Russia’s attack was unprovoked and they don’t need a war because it affects everyone.


Biden said, “Because of the progress we’ve made, because of your resilience and the tools we have been provided by this Congress, tonight I can say we are moving forward safely, back to more normal routines.” 


This is important because Covid was affecting everyone and now it has gone down, people can do the things they want to without the interference of Covid. I agree with this because I thought Covid restrictions were not necessary.
