President Joe Biden spoke to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night, where he touted his administration’s accomplishments during its first 100 days, and its response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Biden also laid out parts of his $1.5 trillion proposed American Families Plan for members of Congress.

Here’s how politicians across the commonwealth reacted.


U.S. Rep. Fred Keller, R-12th District: 

“In his first 100 days as president, Joe Biden has demonstrated he cares more about appeasing the far left than working to benefit and unite our country. With the slimmest majority in modern political history, President Biden and the Democrats have spent trillions of taxpayer dollars, eliminated good-paying energy jobs, and created a crisis at our southern border—opening it to human traffickers and illegal drugs. His latest multi-trillion-dollar spending plan, announced tonight, would bankrupt our kids, our families, and our nation’s economic future.

“The Republican vision for America is predicated on the idea that Americans should keep more of their own money and make more of their own choices. What our nation needs now more than ever is a government willing to get out of the way and allow its people to reclaim control of their lives.”
