Biden Promotes Social Policy Bill in Pennsylvania
President Biden visited Scranton, Pa., to press the case for his administration’s economic, environmental and social policy agenda, even as he has conceded that crucial elements of his proposal would most likely be dropped or substantially pared back.
When I ran for president, I came back to Scranton. I came back to Scranton. I started here in Scranton. And I resolved to bring Scranton values to bear, to make a fundamental shift in how our economy works for working people. To build the economy from the ground up and the middle out, not from the top down. I’ve never known a time when the middle class has done well, the wealthy haven’t done very, very well. These bills are not about left versus right, or about moderate versus progressive, or anything that pits one American against another. These bills are about competitiveness versus complacency. They’re about expanding opportunity, not having opportunity denied. That’s what both these initiatives are all about. And frankly, they’re about more than giving working families a break. They’re about positioning our country to compete in the long haul. Economists left, right and center agree. Earlier this year, the Wall Street outfit Moody’s projected that the investments I’m talking about will create, for the next 20 years on average, two million additional jobs per year. For too long working people of this nation, the middle class in this country, the backbone of the country, have been dealt out. It’s time to deal them back in. I ran for president. I ran for president saying it was time to rebuild the backbone of the nation. And by that, I was very precise. The middle class has been the backbone of this nation.
