State of the Nation address

State+of+the+Nation+address

The three most important topics President Joe Biden discussed in last night’s State of the Union address were  the economy, Voting for the supreme court and equity, and the discussion on Ukraine. 

“But with all the bright spots in our economy, record job growth and higher wages, too many families are struggling to keep up with the bills. Inflation is robbing them of the gains they might otherwise be able to feel. I get it. That’s why my top priority is getting prices under control.”

This is important because we as Americans are being affected by the economic critics. Inflation is a really big issue and it’s a very important matter. It should be the priority to get the prices under control. 

“We have a giant opportunity to bend to the arc of the moral universe toward justice. Real justice. And with the plans I outlined 

tonight, we have a real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues American life in many other ways. A chance to deliver real equity. Good jobs and good schools. Affordable housing. Clean air and clean water.”

This is important because systemic racism has affected America for some time even though most Americans are unaware. He does have a chance to really make things equal and I’m glad he mentioned this. 

“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 be this is happening right now and it’s important to know what Biden thinks of this so we Americans can stay strong.
