Before the speech, Senator Joni Ernst R-IA took to the Senate floor to remind Americans that while Biden campaigned as a moderate and touted the need for more bipartisanship, his administration has been nearly devoid of it. Ernst’s speech was part of the Republican party’s pre-buttal to Biden’s speech tonight.

Senator Ernst explained the Biden Administration has pushed for radical policies that have created a crisis at the southern border, killed thousands of jobs, and squandered trillions of tax dollars on progressive wishlist items rather than pursuing bipartisan policies Americans support.
