Washington, D.C. — Today, following President Joe Biden’s joint address to Congress on the 100th day of the Biden-Harris administration, Rep. Kuster released the following statement reacting to the address:
“The first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration have been transformative for our country, and I believe the best is yet to come. We have a long road ahead to recover and rebuild from COVID-19, and the bold leadership of President Biden and Vice President Harris have us on track to end this pandemic faster than we thought possible. That process began with the American Rescue Plan, which delivered critical relief for families and businesses in New Hampshire and across the country, and helped stave off further economic damage caused by this crisis. The forward-looking American Rescue Plan also put our nation on the path to get more shots into arms — as of today, over 235 million vaccines have been administered. Our economy has already gained over one million new jobs this year, but more must be done to support Americans who are struggling to find work.
“The American Rescue Plan jump started our economy and delivered real, tangible results for Americans, putting us on track to end this crisis. Now, we are continuing those efforts to not only recover from COVID-19 but also to build back better — that’s why the American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan are so important. I was pleased to hear President Biden speak at length about the urgent need to invest in our nation’s infrastructure and to reimagine what infrastructure means as we work to expand access to child care, bolster support for hardworking American families, and build a more resilient economy that meets the needs of our citizens and creates equitable opportunities for all.”
