Joe Biden said the United States was “rising again” in its opening remarks at a joint congressional hearing Wednesday night when it announced that the country was experiencing a revival following a deadly epidemic and economic crisis.
“After 100 days of rescue and restoration, America is ready to leave,” Biden said. “We are still working. Dreaming again. Discovery. Leading the world again. “We have shown each other in the world: There is no place for them in America,” he said. “A hundred days ago, an American house was on fire. We needed to take action. ”
Biden began speaking at the U.S. Capitol after 9 p.m. in Washington without a residential audience as well as government officials because the number of attendees was so low due to coronavirus prevention measures.
But the plan was well-known for the 78-year-old, who has been a filmmaker from Delaware for many years and second vice president for eight years under Barack Obama. Before speaking, Biden recognized himself as the first President to speak to two women – Kamala Harris, Vice President, and Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker.
Biden encouraged US economic recovery and urged Congress to provide more funding. “America is moving. Moving forward. And we can’t stand now. We are fighting against China and other countries to win in the 21st century. ”
After passing a $ 1.9tn promotion plan in March, Biden has turned to persuading Congress to make a $ 2.3tn using construction bil with $ 1.8tn to expand the social security net, which is intended to pay higher taxes on companies and the rich.
“It’s time for the American companies and the 1 richest companies in America to give their share,” Biden said. Just pay their fair share. ”
The president described his building plans as a “blue collar plan to build America” and went to Wall Street, where his constituents have launched a campaign to force tax hikes.
“It recognizes what I have been saying: Wall Street did not build this country. The middle class built this country. And the organizations are the ones that encouraged the middle class.”
Biden’s speech came on the eve of his 100th day in office. He also mentioned Prompt vaccination as proof that he has made his promise to restore art and respect to the White House four years after Donald Trump.
“At a vaccination center in Glendale, Arizona, I asked a nurse what it was like. ‘Every shot sounds like hope,’ he said. ”
The US President’s criticism of Wall Street coincided with his presidential campaign, in which he promised “lucrative business, not wealth”Prioritizing low-income and middle-income families.
However, presidents who give long-distance addresses before Congress and the country prefer to choose their words carefully. Biden’s focus on the financial services market and its richest clients reaffirmed his confidence that he could access billions of dollars in financial assistance as long as it was paid in taxes by corporations and large companies.
