Remarks of President Joe Biden – State of the Union Address as Prepared for Delivery
The United States Capitol
[….]Instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset every five years.
That means if Congress doesn’t vote to keep them, those programs will go away.
Other Republicans say if we don’t cut Social Security and Medicare, they’ll let America default on its debt for the first time in our history.
I won’t let that happen.
Social Security and Medicare are a lifeline for millions of seniors.
Americans have been paying into them with every single paycheck since they started working.
So tonight, let’s all agree to stand up for seniors. Stand up and show them we will not cut Social Security. We will not cut Medicare.
Those benefits belong to the American people. They earned them.
If anyone tries to cut Social Security, I will stop them. And if anyone tries to cut Medicare, I will stop them.
I will not allow them to be taken away.
Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever. [….]
Eric Schmitt (r) appears to have missed the exchanges during that portion of the address:
Eric Schmitt @Eric_Schmitt
Biden’s dispatch from fantasy land tonight will fall on deaf ears in middle America, where Missourians are facing the real impact of Biden’s disastrous policies.
9:42 PM · Feb 7, 2023
Right wingnut says what?
The responses are priceless:
Piper for Missouri @piper4missouri
You’ve done nothing for my state except pick on kids and teachers. Have a seat, friend.
9:49 PM · Feb 7, 2023
What have you done about it
Great track record Eric you’ve literally got a clean slate
You’re a Joke
You sold Missouri land to China.
Damn, you are working so hard to be a mini-me Josh.
LMFAO your lies are crumbling
What have y’all done to help? What jobs or infrastructure have you brought to the state of Missouri.
See that you are Ted Cruz’ personal assistant. Good luck with that.
My state where you sold farmland to China? My ears heard everything, Blowtorch
I give him an A+ for that speech. wow.
Oops. You got huckabee to refute Biden’s knock ‘em out of the park SOTU speech. Good luck w that! Americas see the good Biden is summing for and all the good he has done. Gop has nothing. Literally nothing
Ummmm excuse me … who runs your disastrous state?
Protecting Social Security and Medicare, capping the price of insulin, all infrastructure supplies manufactured in America, putting people back to work … Yeah, I’m sure everyone will sleep right through it [….]
From Missouri Eric…he owned you tonight. Go about your lies however.
President Biden was on fire tonight! He fights for those of us in middle America unlike you! He wants to work with you/republicans for the better of all Americans. Why are you so defiant & opposed to working together to help Missourians & all Americans?
You’re running scared.
The third Senator from Virginia, too, probably.
The only people with deaf ears tonight were Congressional Republucans who couldn’t be bothered to applaud for lower drug costs, higher wages, or even democracy itself.
The only wagon you’re not ashamed is because you have no shame.
You are so out of touch with actual voters.
You got issues
so Midwesterners cant understand fighting for democracy, made in America, saving social security and lowering prescription drug prices? oh I think they do…
Dude, this is the best job market in a generation. We are getting infrastructure replaced because of Federal Funds, although it still will be subpar. State govt in MO could care less about it’s citizens.
Yeah. Doesn’t he know you can just sue China and MO school districts to solve all the nation’s problems?
He’s actually the one trying to help real, actual people. All you’ve ever done for us Missourians is political theatre. And bad theatre at that.
And on and on.
The third Senator from Virginia:
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Biden says he will fight for blue-collar workers … and then shuts down our pipelines, regulates our farms out of existence and tells everybody to buy electric cars
10:12 PM · Feb 7, 2023
Some of the responses:
Your colleague @Eric_Schmitt sold Missouri farmland to China. And we don’t need more pipelines. We need investment into the energy of the future which will produce millions of good paying blue-collar jobs.
We don’t have farms anymore?!?!?!
12m new jobs bud
Republicans will cut Social Security and Medicare!!
517,000 jobs in January
11 million jobs in 2 years
unemployment at lowest level since 1969
The State of Our Union is STRONG
I’m confused Americans can’t make electric cars? Eric sold all the farmland to the Chinese. I know you’re young, but Reagan killed the family farm.
And you ran thr fastest sprint on Capitol grounds.
Be quiet coward
What’s the unemployment rate?
Keep running Josh…..
Biden achievements..more than Trumps in two years.
Lowest unemployment since 1969
Chips and science act
500000 jobs added.
Who exactly do you think makes electric cars?
Remind me – who sold Missouri’s farms to China? [….]
Who builds electric cars? Volunteers?
Dude. Pipelines are still being built. Crude is still being drilled. Corn is $7 a bushel and soybeans are $15 a bushel. This is the most profitable time of my career. Electric cars are the future for a significant portion. Get on board.
What regulations did Biden sign into law that l caused farms to cease to exist?
Oh is that why unemployment is at its lowest point?
Dude, you don’t even care about your constituents.
Are you saying those new manufacturing jobs are fake?
Because electric cars are built by Yale and Stanford grads?
We see what you did there.
Run away from facts, as usual.
And on and on…
