Biden in Address to a Joint Session of Congress

On April 28, his 99th day in office, the 46th president of the United States gave his address to a joint session of congress. Biden talked about everything from his American Jobs Plan to the American Rescue plan.

“Together we passed the American Rescue Plan — one of the most consequential rescue packages in American history. We’re already seeing the results.” Biden noted.

Biden’s American Rescue Plan helped America through the pandemic by providing citizens with stimulus checks and giving over 220 million Covid vaccinations in the first 100 days of Biden’s presidency. Biden also sent stimulus checks to over 85% of American households.

“For many people it’s making all the difference in the world.” Biden says.

Biden continued his speech by talking about the economy and infrastructure. He mentioned the estimated growth of the economy, plans to build railroads and highways, as well as boasting over 1 million new job opportunities.

“We have to build back better.” President Biden says.

Another stand out plan Biden proposed was the, American Jobs Plan, which creates jobs to build better infrastructure, replace lead pipes, create more climate friendly products, and update the power grid.

“Look, the American Jobs Plan will help millions of people get back to their jobs and back to their careers.” Biden says.

A final take away from Biden’s speech was the proposition of the American Families Plan. This plan would provide universal pre-k and two free years of community college, as well as 12 weeks of paid medical leave.

“No one should have to choose between a job and paycheck or taking care of themselves and their loved ones –- a parent, a spouse, or child.” US President, Joe Biden, says.

Throughout the address Biden proposed many plans and shared many ideas for the future of the United States, but there are some of the key takeaways.
