Biden's 2023 State of The Union

President Joe Biden is exhorting republicans in his state of the union address to work with him to finish the job of rebuilding the economy and uniting the nation.

He delivered the address Tuesday (7/2/2023) night, aiming to reassure a country beset by pessimism and fraught political divisions. He offered a positive assessment of the nation's condition, rather than rolling out flashy policy proposals.

He declared that america is "unbowed, unbroken"in the face of the pandemic and economic threats. It was Biden's first speech to congress since republicans took control of the house in the midterm elections.

US President Joe Biden is promising that money from his big infrastructure package will go to projects in republican parts of the country as well as democratic ones.
