Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Responds
to President Biden State of the Union Address
State of the Union response from Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb:
President Biden can forever be called ‘Jobs Biden’ from this point forward. Historic job growth is happening under Biden in stark contrast to our economy under Trump.
Democrats are delivering Made in the USA jobs from clean energy across Nebraska, to manufacturing semiconductors and steel in the Midwest. Real jobs and real products that used to be exported are now being made across America.
While Republicans like Rep. Flood and Sen. Ricketts are focused on culture wars, Democrats are focused on putting money in Nebraskans’ pockets. Nebraska received $1.04 billion from the American Rescue Plan passed by the Biden administration–a bill Rep. Bacon called “a partisan COVID bill.”
Democrats believe in building the economy from the bottom up and middle out. Republicans, including Don Bacon, are on the record wanting to raise the age for Social Security while they protect the Billionaire class. Pres. Biden made it clear he will finish the job to protect critical middle-class programs like Social Security and Medicare while making Billionaires pay their fair share.
Pres. Biden continues to heal the soul of our nation which came through loud and clear in the State of the Union. Nebraska Democrats are ready to finish the job with Pres. Biden.
