Washington, DC – Rep. Ron Kind released the following statement tonight after President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address:

“President Biden sent a powerful message to the world tonight that the United States and our allies continue to stand with the Ukrainian people against Putin’s unprovoked attack. In times like these, it’s clear there’s far more that unites us as Americans rather than divides us as we join together in strong support of Ukraine and democracy everywhere.

“I was also glad to hear more about the President’s plans to lower costs for families across the country while furthering a historically strong economic recovery and how we can continue to build a better America. Despite the challenges we face, our nation has made significant strides in the last year as we saw the American Rescue Plan working to boost our economy, millions of Americans get fully vaccinated, and now the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law helping to rebuild Wisconsin, improve broadband access, and more.

“We must come together – not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans – to build on this progress. To that end, I’m committed to finding common ground with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to make life better for all Wisconsinites.”
