President Joe Biden plans to push a “common outline to remake America” and approach conservatives to “cooperate” with leftists during his Condition of the Association address before a sharply isolated Congress, as indicated by passages of his discourse delivered by the White House.
The latest on Biden’s speech:
- Speech starts at 9 p.m. EST: Biden’s second State of the Union address at the U.S. Capitol will be livestreamed by USA TODAY.
- What he’ll say: “The people sent us a clear message,” Biden intends to say. “Fighting for the sake of fighting, power for the sake of power, conflict for the sake of conflict, gets us nowhere.”
- Blue-collar pitch: Promoting his economic plan, Biden will assure Americans that he wants to invest in “places and people that have been forgotten,” arguing that “too many people have been left behind or treated like they’re invisible.”
- He’ll push billionaire taxes, insulin prices: He will also renew his calls for a minimum tax on billionaires, a cap on insulin prices for all Americans, extending expanded Medicaid coverage to all states and other Democratic priorities that face an uphill battle.
