Gottheimer applauds President Biden’s focus on strong economy, choice, affordability in State of the Union Address

Recognizes key bipartisan accomplishments — PACT Act for veterans, Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, CHIPS Act, Support for Labor, Electoral Reform

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) Friday applauded key priorities outlined by President Biden during the State of the Union Address.

The President highlighted key Jersey Values including protecting reproductive freedom, the need to continue building a strong economy, making life more affordable by lowering taxes, prescription drugs costs, and restoring the SALT deduction, securing our borders, investing in infrastructure and our men and women of labor, and supporting our veterans.

President Biden also highlighted the many big wins he’s had during his presidency, including many which Gottheimer helped craft and pass — the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, the CHIPS & Science Act, and the PACT Act for veterans.

Gottheimer hosted American family members of hostages as his guests at the State of the Union Address. Gottheimer’s guests include the Alexanders, parents of hostage Edan Alexander from Tenafly, NJ, and Jonathan Dekel-Chen, father of hostage Sagui Dekel-Chen. Both hostages are Americans.

“What the President did last night was take a key victory lap on our bipartisan accomplishments, including many I helped craft and pass, like the historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, the CHIPS and Science Act, the PACT Act, and more,” Gottheimer said. “As the President said, this election is about common sense over extremism, building a stronger economy, making life more affordable, and protecting a women’s right to choose.”
