President Joe Biden will deliver his first major speech to a joint session of Congress tonight and already lawmakers are sounding off on what they may or may not hear from the President.

We know President Biden will discuss the spending programs that have come up recently. We also know that in previous speeches, Biden has talked about wanting to unify America and wanting to be a figure the American people can unite around. It's that issue that Senator Ted Cruz says Biden is falling short on.

In a press release on Wednesday, hours before Biden is supposed to speak. Cruz blasted Biden for being more in step with radicals in his own party than trying to unite the nation.

 As President Biden gives his first Joint Address to Congress, he’ll likely be doing so under the guise of unity and make his best attempts to appeal to bipartisanship ­– though what the American people have seen since he took the oath of office has been anything but.

President Biden has embraced the radical left, and if Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s recent comments are any measure, his administration has “exceeded” progressives’ expectations.

But President Biden’s efforts to plow ahead and appease the most radical members of his base isn’t what the American people want. In fact, 60% of Americans say Biden should try to win Republican support by making major changes to his proposals.

The press release from Cruz links to numerous news stories with polling data on defunding the police, Biden's infrastructure plan, court packing, and more.
