President Joe Biden made history delivering his first address to Congress earlier this week. The day not only marked the eve of his 100th day in office, but for the first time in American history, the president was joined by two women on the dais of the Chamber.

Biden began his speech with a strong sense of assurance to the American people stating, “Now—after just 100 days—I can report to the nation: America is on the move again. Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength.” The Biden administration is expected to be ontrack to getting tens of millions of Americans vaccinated and to pull the nation out of an economic crisis.

The president highlighted his multi-year, $2 trillion USD investment, American Jobs Plan, expected to create millons of jobs and stimulate economic growth. The plan includes potential upgrades for airports and public transportation, as well as projects set to advace racial equity, improvement to water infrastructure and expanding better access to caregivers.

Biden said, “Now, I know some of you at home wonder whether these jobs are for you. You feel left behind and forgotten in an economy that’s rapidly changing. Let me speak directly to you. Independent experts estimate the American Jobs Plan will add millions of jobs and trillions of dollars in economic growth for years to come. These are good-paying jobs that can’t be outsourced. Nearly 90 percent of the infrastructure jobs created in the American Jobs Plan don’t require a college degree; 75 percent don’t require an associate’s degree. The Americans Jobs Plan is a blue-collar blueprint to build America. And, it recognizes something I’ve always said: Wall Street didn’t build this country. The middle class built this country. And unions built the middle class.”
