President Biden just doesn’t get it. He’s out of touch. Under his Administration, families are worse off. Our communities are less safe, and our country is less secure.

Senator Britt (R-Al) providing the Republican response to Pres. Joe Biden’s state of the union.

Why It Matters: The content of Sen. Britt’s remarks signals the issues the Republican party wants to prioritize in 2024, as well as the importance of women voters.

Sen. Britt prioritized discussing family, the southern border, the economy and crime. “The American dream has turned into a nightmare for so many families.” Sen. Britt spoke directly to mothers: “

“And that’s why tonight, I want to make a direct appeal to the parents out there – and in particular, to my fellow moms.

Many of whom will be tossing and turning at 2 a.m. wondering how they are going to be three places at once tomorrow and somehow still get dinner on the table.

First of all, we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.

I know you’re frustrated. I know you’re probably disgusted by most of what you see going on in Washington. And I’ll be really honest with you – you’re not wrong for feeling that way.

Look, I get it. The task in front of us isn’t an easy one. But I can promise you one thing: it is worth it. So, I am asking you, for the sake of your kids and your grandkids, get into the arena.”

Background: A married, mother of two, Senator Britt (42) was the youngest woman ever elected to the U.S. Senate at age 40.
