Biden's Address To Congress, Annotated

President Biden makes his first joint address to Congress Wednesday night.

The speech comes about 100 days into his presidency, and will be delivered to a Capitol chamber with reduced occupancy, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden is expected to detail his early accomplishments, and his newly unveiled American Families Plan.
