Following President Biden’s State of the Union speech before Congress tonight, Democratic Majority for Israel President and CEO Mark Mellman issued the following statement:

“President Biden demonstrated tonight that he has the back of ordinary Americans, and he’s getting important things done to improve our lives. Whether it’s creating 12 million new jobs, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, holding down prescription drug prices, or raising real wages over the last six months, President Biden is rebuilding our country and its vital middle class.

“But President Biden’s work goes beyond the material. He is restoring the soul of America and fighting to ensure our democracy remains strong, as does our mutually beneficial alliance with Israel. DMFI is committed to helping him finish the job.”
