Last Joint Session - February 7, 2023

President Biden gave his second State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress from the U.S. Capitol. He paid homage to several persons to highlight key issues, including the late Tyre Nichols, who died following an encounter with Memphis police officers; Brandon Tsay, who disarmed a mass shooter in Monterey Park, California; and Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) husband, Paul, who was attacked in his San Francisco home months earlier in an act of political violence. Moreover, House Republicans vocally protested when President Biden claimed they would try to sunset Social Security and Medicare amid debt ceiling negotiations. Also, the president touted achievements such as infrastructure/energy investments, job creation, and the lowering of drug costs; he then discussed issues his administration and the new Republican-controlled House may work on together, such as cancer, mental health, the opioid epidemic, and helping veterans.
