Dems in Disarray: Squad Member to Deliver Response to Biden’s State of the Union Address


Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, a member of the socialist squad in the U.S. House, will give a response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address next week.

According to POLITICO, Tlaib plans to hammer members of her own party in the response.

In the speech, given on behalf of the left-wing group Working Families Party, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) is expected to hammer moderate Democrats who have stymied Biden’s social spending and climate change package.

Tlaib will praise Biden’s stimulus bill and make the case that liberals have pushed aggressively for his agenda, according to a summary of her remarks shared exclusively with POLITICO.

The speech will put on display the deep rifts within the Democratic Party that have marked Biden’s presidency. Months ahead of the daunting midterm election, many Democrats are looking to put aside those differences in order to present a united front against Republicans. But the left sees an opportunity in this year’s primaries to elect a more liberal Democratic majority to Congress.

Yesterday it was announced Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds will respond on behalf of Republicans to Biden’s remarks.
