Stronger now and getting stronger: Biden outlines accomplishments and priorities.

*From beating back COVID to creating over 6.5 million new jobs – the most in a single year in the nation’s history, he said – Biden outlined his administration’s accomplishments during the Tuesday night speech.

He also laid out his priorities for what comes next, proposing a “unity agenda” that shows once again that he is on the side of working families. He highlighted proposals to lower the cost of prescription drugs and child care, make it easier for workers to form strong unions, fight climate change, and more.

“Let’s pass the PRO Act,” Biden said. “When a majority of workers want to form a union, they shouldn’t be stopped. When we invest in our workers, when we build the economy from the bottom up and the middle out together, we can do something we haven’t done in a long time: build a better America.”

In Biden’s first year in office, the economy grew at the strongest rate in nearly 40 years, thanks in part to the American Rescue Plan, which provided much-needed support to working families during the pandemic’s second year and was made possible in part by AFSCME members.'>>>

instead of giving opinions saying he is failing right and left, down in the polls, no Dem will win in midterms, etc.

He's done a great job of turning around the mess that was handed off to him, as well as handling new crisis, like Ukraine.
