Chair Walters Statement on President Biden’s Address to Congress

Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Liz Walters released the following statement praising President Joe Biden’s address to Congress, in which he outlined a number of priorities that will help Ohioans.

President Biden discussed the success of the American Rescue Plan — passed into law with the help of Sen. Brown and Ohio Democrats — which has helped millions of Ohioans get their COVID-19 vaccines, helped small businesses reopen and put money back in the pockets of working Ohioans. President Biden also outlined the American Families Plan, which will help Ohio families make ends meet by investing in child care, universal preschool, higher education funding, paid family and medical leave, as well as providing middle-class tax cuts.

“In just 100 days, President Biden has already put Ohio back on the path to prosperity as we work to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and build back better. It’s clear that President Biden’s steadfast commitment to working families is paying off, as we’re seeing shots in arms and money in pockets all across our state. And President Biden is just getting started, as Ohio gets set to benefit from the plans he outlined tonight to rebuild our state’s infrastructure and invest in Ohio families,” said Chair Walters.
