IN THE STATES: President Biden’s Economic Plan is Working
December 10, 2021
This week, Americans felt some relief as gasoline prices fell, jobless claims reached their lowest level since 1969, and thanks to President Biden and Democrats, investments in our nation’s roads, bridges, and highways are on the way. And once again, Democrats kept their foot on the gas to make sure voters across the country know that this recovery is thanks to President Biden and Democrats’ plan to build our economy back better.
Here’s a look at what voters in states across the country read about how Democrats have been delivering this week:
President Biden visited Kansas City this week to highlight the benefits of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, from creating good-paying jobs to lowering prices by improving the infrastructure for our supply chains.

State Democratic parties across the country continued to barnstorm battleground media markets, talking about how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will create good-paying jobs, modernize our roads, bridges, and public transit, replace lead water pipes and service lines, improve access to high-speed internet, and so much more.

And in case you missed it, local news outlets across the country have been full of good news on the economy over the last few weeks, thanks to President Biden’s leadership. Americans are now paying less at the gas pump, and we are in the midst of the fastest economic recovery in history with nearly 6 million jobs created since President Biden took office – more than any new president – and experiencing one of the best labor markets in over half a century.
