On February 7th, President Joe Biden gave the annual state of the union address in the House Chamber located in the nation's capital. In this address, he highlighted his policy achievements thus far and delivered a speech that outlined what he aims to do in the remainder of his term. More importantly, though, he laid the framework for policy that he may run on in 2024.
The speech was filled with the typical routine of standing ovations and sitting down when you disagreed with what the president had to say. One highlight from the night came when President Biden mentioned that a small minority of Republicans wanted to do away with Social security potentially. This garnered a loud reaction from the Republican side of the aisle, which came with lots of head shaking and shouting in protest.
According to CNN, President Biden’s longest talking point was about health care which came in at 8:57 minutes of talk time. His least talked about topic was opioids at 8 seconds.
