President Joe Biden will try to get through an entire Address to a Joint Session of Congress tonight, the first such speech of his term in office.
The Address to a Joint Session of Congress is a more modern tradition among incoming Presidents. It’s similar to a State of the Union Address.
You can watch the full speech live right here starting at 8:30 p.m., which is well past the President’s bed time:
Attendance to the Joint Session is limited to just 200 people and tonight’s speech will look a lot different than it has in years’ past.
According to a Politico report, Biden is expected to announce his “American Families Plan” which is just another multi-trillion-dollar spending bill that, like other Biden trillion-dollar spending bills so far, probably won’t address the title of the bill.
The American Rescue Plan, which was marketed as a COVID relief bill, barely addressed COVID. His proposed infrastructure bill has Congresspeople on the left redefining what is infrastructure.
You can also expect Biden to take credit for a thriving economy that’s trying to get back to where it was in early-2020, prior to the pandemic. And he’ll likely praise himself and his administration for their COVID management, even though it’s exactly the same as the Trump administration’s.
