Statement by Congressman Kildee on President Biden’s Joint Address to Congress
“President Biden inherited a nation in crisis, including a raging pandemic and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. But with just 100 days in office, President Biden has already delivered results for the American people to defeat COVID-19 and get our economy back on track.
“President Biden is driven by results, not partisanship or showmanship. To help families, seniors and small businesses get through this pandemic, President Biden and Democrats in Congress passed the American Rescue Plan. This relief means more money in workers’ pockets, faster vaccine distribution, getting our kids back in the classroom safely and providing support for small businesses. Under the president’s leadership, America is now leading the world in vaccine distribution, with more than 200 million shots in arms.
“President Biden tonight laid out a vision for how we invest in the hardworking men and women of America. With the American Jobs Plan, we will rebuild our roads, bridges and water systems to make our economy more competitive and create good-paying jobs. And with the American Families Plan, we can make a transformational investment in our greatest asset—our workers and children—to ensure access to paid family leave, community college and affordable childcare is available to every American family.
“I look forward to continuing to work in Congress with President Biden and Vice President Harris to grow our economy and invest in our workers.”
