Washington, DC — Today, Ezra Levin, Co-Executive Director of Indivisible, issued the following statement:
"President Biden just delivered one of the strongest speeches of his administration by positioning himself as a champion in the fight against the destructive MAGA agenda. He showed up to fight —and he had fun doing it— and he showed the American public where the two parties stand.”
“President Biden’s first two years in office have given us tons to celebrate, and Indivisible is thrilled that the investments from the Inflation Reduction Act are continuing to land in our communities - new jobs, green energy, lower prescription drug prices, and more. Democrats delivered big things!
“And the contrast with Republicans is clear: we've got the MAGA majority in the House whose top priorities are taking the global economy hostage and inflicting painful cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and other core programs for all of us. Biden's strongest moment was drawing a sharp line in the sand, refusing to negotiate on the debt ceiling with the bad-faith nonsense from Kevin McCarthy.
“Biden showed the pathway to win this fight: pick the side of the American people, promise never to cut programs like Social Security and Medicare, and challenge the GOP to disagree with you. We saw in real-time Republicans running away from their out-of-touch positions, pretending they’ve never supported these extreme cuts. Every Democrat should take note of how this works.””
