Biden uses jobs report to push for Congress to support his agenda

President Joe Biden is pushing for Congress to vote on his agenda items in honor of his October job gains reported on Friday. 

According to a report in Breitbart News, the president is attempting to leverage the better-than-expected job numbers as a way of rallying Congress behind his plans:

“I’m asking every House member, member of the House of Representatives, to vote yes on both these bills, right now,” Biden said. “Send the infrastructure bill to my desk. Send the Build Back Better bill to the Senate.”

According to Breitbart, the president made an attempt to muster a show of confidence and reportedly joined forces with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who hopes to hold a vote on the budget issues by the end of the week. 

“Biden argued that the boost in jobs growth was the result of his $1.9 trillion bill passed in March and demanded more support for his multitrillion-dollar agenda,” Breitbart reported. 

According to Biden, the economic recovery in the United States was “faster, stronger, fairer, and wider” than what was expected, particularly after last month’s abysmal reports:

“That’s what the numbers say, but we want to make sure that people continue to feel it in their lives, in their bank accounts, in their hopes and expectations,” Biden said.

The administration is pushing for their multitrillion-dollar Build Back Better bill in the name of infrastructure and economic growth as the president’s astonishingly disappointing first year comes to a close with plummeting poll numbers and growing frustration with the Oval Office.
