Biden to Push Economic Message After Rowdy State of the Union Speech

President Biden headed to Wisconsin on Wednesday, taking the economic pitch he delivered during the State of the Union on the road, and ramping up his criticism of a Republican proposal on entitlements that led to lawmakers heckling him during the prime-time speech.

Mr. Biden sought to explain to the public in his address on Tuesday how they stand to benefit from the trillions of dollars in spending he helped shepherd through Congress, arguing that his policies have helped the U.S. economy recover from the Covid-19 pandemic with the unemployment rate now at a 53-year low. Republicans say he has spent far too much federal money and been an unsteady steward of the economy.
