WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Last night, President Joe Biden delivered the final State of the Union Address of his first term. He made his case to the American electorate as to why it shouldn’t be his last address. 

“Now it's we who face an unprecedented moment in the history of the Union,” said President Biden as he discussed the need for the U.S. to help allies like Ukraine in their fight against Russia. 

Aside from foreign aid, Biden hit on other key issues like the economy, reproductive rights and even encouraged Congress to pass Senator Bob Casey's (D- PA) Shrinkflation Prevention Act. 

“It's called Shrinkflation. Pass Bobby Casey's bill and stop this. I really mean it,” said President Biden as he gave a SOTU shoutout to Sen. Casey. 

The 81-year-old President delivered the address Thursday evening to a deeply divided Congress. As expected, the reaction was partisan. 

“Joe Biden delivered an incredible speech that was very well received by the American people beginning, middle and end,” said House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D- NY).

“As the President declared tonight, the state of the American economy is strong, with record high job creation and record low unemployment,” said Sen. Casey in a statement following the address. 

Both New York Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D- NY) and Chuck Schumer (D- NY) also applauded Biden's address.

“Tonight, President Biden showed the American People that the state of our union  - and his leadership - is strong and only getting stronger with each passing day as we build back from the COVID-19 pandemic," said Senate Majority Leader Schumer following the address last night. "Thanks to the leadership of President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress, we have a stronger economy, more jobs, a proven record of accomplishments, and a brighter future for America and have good reason to hope that our country’s best days still lie ahead."

Republicans were not shy with their criticism of the address. 

“It really did sound like a bad, really poorly prepared campaign speech,” said Rep. Jack Bergman (R- MI). “We need to be inspired by the leadership in our country... the takeaway will be, not inspiring,” Bergman added. 

Representative Nick Langworthy (R- NY) echoed similar remarks on social media after the address. 

“Instead of bringing our nation together, President Biden’s State of the Union address was nothing more than a divisive campaign speech. He failed to take ownership of his disastrous policies and instead tried to place the blame on House Republicans,” said Rep. Nick Langworthy on X, formerly Twitter. “He single-handedly created a crisis at our borders, crushed our economy, crippled the American energy sector, plunged us deeper into debt, enabled violent crime in our major cities, and made it harder to raise a family or own a business in the United States,” Langworthy added.
