Last night, President Joe Biden held a rally where he highlighted the choice voters have this November between Democrats taking on special interests to deliver for working families and Republicans pushing their extreme agenda that costs Americans.
He made the case for Democrats all over the country this November, and powerfully laid out what’s at stake on Election Day.
Watch the full speech here. Read the highlights below:
"Your right to choose is on the ballot this year. The Social Security you paid for from the time you had a job is on the ballot. The safety of your kids from gun violence is on the ballot."
"We never gave in and we're delivering for the American people now. Even our critics have been forced to acknowledge real progress."
“Ten million new jobs more than we've ever created before at this point in anyone's presidency, 3.5 percent unemployment rate, a near record low in the history of this country. A 15 percent drop in child poverty compared to two years ago and more than 220 million Americans vaccinated. Record small business creation.”
“For decades, Big Pharma won. But not this year! The American people won, and Big Pharma lost.”
"Just take a look at what happened since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. In red state after red state, there's a race to pass the most restrictive abortion limitations imaginable, even without exception for rape or incest."
“It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the – I’m going to say something, it’s like semi-fascism,”
“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people, they embrace, embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy. This is why in this moment, those of you who love this country — Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans — we must be stronger, more determined and more committed to saving America than the MAGA Republicans [who] are destroying America.”
“If the MAGA Republicans win control of the Congress, it won't matter where you live. Women won't have the right to choose anywhere. Anywhere. Let me tell you something. If they take it back and they try and pass it, I will veto it."
