Sherrill Reacts to Biden’s State of the Union Speech

U.S. Representative Mikie Sherrill (D-11) issued the following statement in response to 2023 State of the Union address:

“Tonight, we heard the President reflect on the accomplishments we have delivered for the American people and lay out an agenda that we can all work together on: increasing public safety, growing the middle class, investing in American manufacturing, making healthcare affordable, and expanding early childhood programs.

“We have set new records for jobs created, economic growth, wage increases, and shrinking unemployment with common-sense solutions. Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Gateway Tunnel Project is fully funded, which will shorten commute times and keep our economy moving forward in North Jersey. With the Inflation Reduction Act, seniors only have to pay $35 for insulin and families can take advantage of credits that will help households save money on major energy expenses, such as driving and home heating and cooling. We boosted domestic manufacturing of microchips to ensure that we address the semiconductor shortage and reduce the prices of everyday goods. In the past two years, we prioritized building a stronger America.

“However, we know that more work needs to be done. We will outcompete China by leveraging America’s innovative and competitive spirit. We must fight for childcare for every family across the country, which will help Americans get back to work, increase economic productivity, and create lifelong benefits for our children’s development and well-being. We will make our communities safer by combating gun violence and supporting our law enforcement.

“Looking into the crowd of colleagues, I was proud to see the unwavering support for Ukraine and their fight against Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified invasion. We saw tonight that there is far more that unites us as Americans. I am prepared and ready to work with my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to continue this critical work and deliver for NJ-11.”

    The saying is …..short and sweet
    NOT ….short and mean-spirited.

    Bravo, Mikie Sherrill, excellent statement.
    It was uplifting and positive, and also appreciated by this InsiderNj reader and New Jersey voter.

  2. So many good things happening and yet we really need to pick the pace up on Healthcare for all. We saw the US government come up with plans to treat everyone during height of Covid 19 pandemic…but every illness needs total support of the government…even as a diabetic that will get some benefits – my heart ached for ALL suffering from illnesses and added stress regarding how to pay for care. We need to eliminate health insurance companies – their employees are needed as true health care workers – there is a shortage of true Healthcare workers – not obstructionist to care. Bad doctors need to be held accountable. Mortality rates of People of Color shouldn’t be higher for women giving birth. Unnecessary Cesarean surgeries that are profitable and harmful to mothers and babies need to have Doctor’s licenses pulled. This is do able and Congress can make it happen fast. Write “Abuse to patients and women giving birth ceases today Bill. –

  3. Is this overt gaslighting or is she inhabiting an alternate reality?
    Her office was complicit in encouraging people to take the Poison Covid vaccines and boosters . Vaccines that time has now told have caused untold suffering and death .
    The pain at the pumps and supermarket?
    The rising interest rates eroding the dream of home ownership…
    The fact that we are on the verge of World War with a nuclear armed Russia. Any form of nuclear exchange could escalate to an extinction level event for humanity…
    Ukraine is know to be one of the most corrupt governments on the planet. Kiev often being referred to as the organ harvesting capital of Europe.
    15 US supported bio labs in the country concocting who knows what ungodly creations .
    A president who silences opposition clergy and media. In addition to a reported net worth of up to 7 Billion dollars.

    Wake up NJ , doesn’t matter if you’re left or right . The pain at the pump and supermarket is just the same . No one cares if you’re woke or conservative when the government coerces you to inject yourself with poison vaccines. If a ballistic missile with a nuclear payload hits NYC and your family and children are incinerated within a few seconds does Republican or Democrat make a difference?
    Congresswoman Sherrill is not the answer. She will never speak the hard truths to protect and fight for you . It will always be party , power , prestige first and your family last .
