Read President Joe Biden’s first Address to Congress

Updated 10:24 PM ET, Wed April 28, 2021

(CNN)–President Joe Biden on Wednesday delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress. Read his remarks as prepared for delivery:

Madame Speaker.

Madame Vice President.

No president has ever said those words from this podium, and it’s about time.

The First Lady.
The Second Gentleman.

Mr. Chief Justice.
Members of the United States Congress and the Cabinet — and distinguished guests.
My fellow Americans.
While the setting tonight is familiar, this gathering is very different — a reminder of the extraordinary times we are in. Throughout our history, Presidents have come to this chamber to speak to the Congress, to the nation, and to the world. To declare war. To celebrate peace. To announce new plans and possibilities.
Tonight, I come to talk about crisis — and opportunity. About rebuilding our nation — and revitalizing our democracy.
And winning the future for America.
As I stand here tonight — just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War. Now, after just 100 days, I can report to the nation: America is on the move again. Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength. Life can knock us down. But in America, we never stay down.
In America, we always get up.

CNN Fact-checking Biden’s first joint address to Congress

Washington (CNN)–In his first joint address to Congress, President Joe Biden struck an optimistic tone, speaking for more than an hour and pushing his expansive vision of building America “back better” by touting his vast infrastructure plan and praising the progress the country has made against Covid-19. While Biden’s speech was, for the most part, factually accurate there were a few incorrect claims — notably at times when he went off script — and some that require context and explanation. Here’s a look at the facts:

-Biden claims he’s traveled 17,000 miles with Xi

-The undocumented population

-Biden’s infrastructure plan and the economy

-Biden’s infrastructure plan and education

-Biden on his work on root causes of migration as vice president

-Seniors vaccinated under President Biden

-Biden’s claims about women leaving the workforce

-Cutting child poverty in half

-Biden’s efforts to reduce hunger

-Biden on Medicare drug prices

Cela etant, apres les 100 premiers jours de la Presidence Democrate, nous sentons bien la difference entre Biden-Harris et son predecesseur. Ce que l’on peut evaluer correctement a ce moment-ci sont principalement les Plans d’Urgence et le progres sur la Vaccination… pour le reste… les americains doivent attendre un peu avant de connaitre l’ensemble des effets de la nouvelle administration.

Tout ce que je peux dire, c’est qu’ici, l’administration publique, malgre les apparences est encore sous les effets du Trumpisme, meme si l’appat du gain (New Green Deal) les fait saliver, surtout en pleine campagne pre-electorale.

Non, l’Amerique n’a pas encore “Tout Changer”…. La Vraie Revolution de la pensee Occidentale n’est pas encore arrivee. “Follow the Path…”, voyons les resultats… agissons en consequence. La Population civile doit etre vigilante, les derives etant toujours possibles.

Personnellement, ce sont les retombees a plus long terme qui seront a mesurer… bien que le ton “pose” de la nouvelle administration contraste avec la precedente administration. Et, il ne faut pas se surprendre si, sur le plan internationale, la politique americaine de Biden ne soit pas si differente de celle de l’epoque Obama… Biden doit concentrer ses efforts sur la situation interieure, du moins a court terme. Je me demande meme, si ici, a Quebec, a Ottawa, Toronto, derriere des portes closes, nous entendons ceci: “Quel Gaspillage! Des “trillions de dollars”, pour des illettres, des noirs, des latinos… des femmes? C’est un non sens!”
