Also on Tuesday, the Congressional Progressive Caucus held an Alternative State of the Union session in the Capitol.

California Democrat Barbara Lee, who co-chairs the 53-member caucus, as she opened the session saying, "We are holding an Alternative State of the Union address because we believe that Americans deserve a vision of a future of peace and justice rather than war and economic hardship and inequality.

Tape:

  • Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), member of the Progressive Caucus, recorded at the alternative State of the Union yesterday.
  • Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), member of the Progressive Caucus, recorded at the alternative State of the Union yesterday.
