Biden aims to deliver reassurance in State of Union address


President Joe Biden delivers the State of the Union address tonight. The president is expected to offer a reassuring assessment of the nation's condition before a politically divided Congress. On the eve of the president's address, GOP House speaker Kevin McCarthy challenged Biden to come to the negotiating table with House Republicans to cut spending as part of a deal to raise the debt ceilings. President Biden wants Congress to raise the debt limit yet again. Without a single sensible change to how government spends your hard earned money. Biden has insisted that he won't negotiate on meeting the country's debt obligations. And while COVID-19 has eased at home, Biden is expected to turn his sights to the deadly opioid epidemic, mental health, gun violence, and police abuses. The parents of the Memphis man recently beaten to death by police officers are expected to be in the audience. Donna water Washington
