In the Republicans’ rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s first State of the Union address, Senator Tim Scott said the president “seems like a good man,” and his speech was “full of good words.” But Biden promised to unite a nation and to govern for all Americans, no matter how we voted.
Has he done so? Our nation, Sen. Scott said, is starving for more than empty platitudes, and Biden’s actions are pulling us further apart.
Sen. Scott talked about the devastation the COVID-19 pandemic has caused families and businesses. Too many churches were shut down, and children have lost a year of learning “when they could not afford to lose a single day. Locking vulnerable kids out of the classroom is locking adults out of their future. Government schools should have opened months ago. Science shows that it is safe. This is a clear case for school choice. ”
A bipartisan Congress passed COVID-19 relief legislation last year, which helped the economy. “Common sense found common ground.” Republicans told Biden they wanted to finish the fight together, but the Democrats wanted to do it alone. They spent almost $2 trillion on a partisan bill, and the White House bragged that it was the most liberal bill in history.
