|After inheriting an unprecedented health crisis and an economy that was failing hardworking Americans, President Biden is delivering on his promises to build back better. With over 200 million shots in arms, money in the pockets of Americans who need it, and more jobs created in the first 100 days than any prior administration, President Biden’s leadership is getting our country back on track, without any help from congressional Republicans.
From day one, President Biden stepped up to the challenge and is delivering on his promises of quickly getting vaccines in arms and putting the country on the road to recovery.
CNN: “The President can report at the end of his first 100 days in office to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night that he has successfully embarked on a mission he defined on Inauguration Day to ‘repair,’ ‘restore,’ ‘heal’ and ‘build.’ He promised 100 million vaccines administered in his first 100 days, and delivered 200 million. With a Democratic-controlled Congress, he sent out the $1,400 emergency checks that never arrived under ex-President Donald Trump and a Republican Senate.”
Vox: “Prior to taking office, Biden promised to administer 100 million vaccine doses within his first 100 days. He’s made good on that promise and then some: On Wednesday, his administration announced that 200 million vaccine doses have been administered in the US.”
NBC News: “A majority of Americans — 61 percent — say the worst is behind the United States when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic, while just 19 percent believe the worst is yet to come. That’s a significant reversal from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll in October, when 55 percent of voters said the worst was yet to come, and when only 25 percent said the worst was behind the U.S.”
President Biden’s leadership helped deliver billions to struggling Americans to keep businesses open, pay the bills, put food on the table, and is getting our economy back on track just 100 days in.
Associated Press: “Biden’s package featured $1,400 payments to most people, on top of $1,800 from Trump’s two waves of pandemic relief, which steered nearly $3 trillion to the economy. But Biden’s package was much more geared to lower-income Americans and broader in its sweep. It focused on barriers to returning to work and sustaining people as they look for jobs, instead of subsidizing employers. It offers the prospect of slashing poverty by one-third with the stroke of his pen.”
CNBC: “So far in his young presidency, President Joe Biden has been one of the best friends the stock market has ever had. Better, in fact, than any president before him going back to at least the 1950s and the Dwight Eisenhower administration, as the 46th chief executive has witnessed an unprecedented growth on Wall Street in his first 100 days in office as measured from the time of his election.”
Axios: “The pandemic-wracked job market has continued to steadily heal since President Biden took office, helped along by mass vaccinations that have rekindled an economic reopening. The latest sign: New unemployment filings — one proxy for layoffs — have hit pandemic-era lows in recent weeks.”
