WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after attending President Joe Biden’s second State of the Union address:
“President Biden has proven over these last two years that it is still possible for our elected leaders to deliver real progress and tangible results for the American people. Thanks to President Biden’s measured hand and determined focus, the power of the Oval Office is back, and it is making a difference for families across the country and for America’s leadership on the world stage.
“I have been proud to work alongside the Biden-Harris administration to make historic strides to protect our children’s future on this planet, to lower health care and energy costs for families, to invest in economic development and competitiveness, to assist New Mexicans as they recover and rebuild from a devastating wildfire season, to deliver important health benefits to our heroic military veterans, and to reduce deadly gun violence in our communities.
“In his speech this evening, President Biden laid out his plan to build on these historic achievements, to continue strengthening America’s middle class, build our economy from the bottom up, protect Social Security and Medicare, and keep our nation heading in the right direction.
“I’m proud to stand with President Biden and ready to finish the job. We will continue to deliver for New Mexicans with good-paying jobs, reproductive rights, climate saving solutions, safer communities, and a brighter future for everyone.”
