Pres. Biden speaking on the jobs report and economic stimulus

  • Jobs recovery not by accident. It is a direct result of rescue plan
  • We still up more work to do
  • Jobs report represents historic progress
  • There is more work to do to get more Americans vaccinated and back to work
  • the sun is coming out on the US economy
  • We are seeing more jobs and better wages
  • US must continue to make investments to grow the economy

Needless to say Pres. Biden is taking a victory lap after the jobs report. The problem is if the report is too good, it would make more stimulus plans more difficult on Capitol Hill.

Overall not a big surprise of course.
