How can we compete in the world if millions of parents can’t join the workforce because they can’t afford the cost of child care and have to stay home? My Build Back Better Agenda will ensure no middle-income family will pay more than 7% of their income on child care.
The American people spoke. My Build Back Better Agenda and Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal are what 81 million Americans voted for when they voted for me. Their voice deserves to be heard. Not denied.
No matter how long you live there, Scranton never leaves you. So, when I ran for president, I came back and resolved to bring Scranton values to bear. To make a fundamental shift in how our economy works for working people. That’s what my Build Back Better Agenda will do.
The sacred right to vote is under unrelenting assault across the country — and the Senate needs to take action to protect it. Senate Republicans need to allow a debate and let there be a vote on the Freedom to Vote Act. Democracy — the very soul of America — is at stake.
I ran on the promise of building an economy that works for the folks in Scranton — not those on Park Avenue. And, I won’t rest until the job is done.
Here’s the deal: If you spent $3 on your coffee this morning, that’s more than what 55 major corporations paid in taxes in recent years. It’s wrong — and it’s got to change.
Right now, workers and the ultra-wealthy aren’t just playing on an unfair playing field — they’re playing different sports. My plans will put an end to that.
The COVID-19 plan I laid out in September is working. We’re headed in the right direction. But we have critical work to do — and we can’t let up.
The bottom line is this: When we give working families a break, we’re not just raising their quality of life. We’re also positioning our country to compete for the future.
I’m the proud husband of an educator, and I’ve seen firsthand the dedication and selflessness the job requires. Yesterday, we hosted recipients of the 2020 and 2021 Teacher of the Year awards at the White House to celebrate their achievements and thank them for all they do.pic.twitter.com/6HExcoYmtv
We’re going to pass my Build Back Better Agenda and ensure the super-wealthy and big corporations pay their fair share.
Since I took office, the economy has created nearly 5 million jobs and unemployment is the lowest it’s been since the beginning of the pandemic. Let’s pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and my Build Back Better Agenda to keep this progress going.
Despite the attacks and misinformation, my plans still have the overwhelming support of the American people. They understand that when families have a little more breathing room, America has a better shot.
Jill and I are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend and a patriot of unmatched honor and dignity, General Colin Powell. Time and again, he put country before self, before party, before all else—in uniform and out. He will be remembered as one of our great Americans.
The cost of the Build Back Better Agenda — in terms of adding to the deficit — is zero. It’s paid for because big corporations and the very wealthy will start paying their fair share.
It’s never a good bet to bet against the American people. It’s time for us to invest in ourselves to show the world that American democracy works. And that given half a chance, there’s nothing we can’t achieve if we work together.
