Las Vegas, NV – Today Representative Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement after watching President Biden’s joint address to Congress:
“Our country is doing far better now than it was when President Biden took office,” said Congresswoman Titus (NV-1). “Through the American Rescue Plan, we are putting shots in arms, money in pockets, workers in jobs, and children safely back in schools. He could have spent the whole speech bragging about that, but instead he chose to focus on the future.
“Tonight President Biden demonstrated why he is the statesman our country needs right now. You could feel his empathy toward people who are struggling through no fault of their own – and you could see his resolve when he talked about his plans to help them.
“The American Families Plan would make it easier to get into the middle class and stay in the middle class. In the United States of America, pre-school, quality child care, and paid leave should not be luxuries reserved only for the lucky few. Best of all, we can fully pay for the American Families Act and the American Jobs Act without raising taxes on anyone who makes less than $400,000 a year.
“President Biden presented a clear vision for this country and he has the policies and political will to make it a reality. After listening to his speech, I’m feeling even more inspired to get this work done.”
