In this news, we discuss the Biden says we need to act ‘decisively and boldly’
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Joe Biden on Friday said the US economic crisis was deepening and the government needed to take major action now to help struggling Americans.
The government must act “decisively and boldly” to help Americans who are seeing their paychecks reduced and “barely hanging on,” Biden told the White House in presenting his economic relief plan against the coronavirus.
Biden said his $ 2 trillion economic relief plan to deal with the devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic is supported by businesses, workers, Wall Street and Main Street.
“A lot of America is suffering. The virus is increasing. … Families are hungry. People are at risk of being deported. Job losses are increasing again. We have to act. No matter how you look at it, we have to act, ”Biden said as he prepared to sign a series of executive actions.
“If we act now, our economy will be stronger in the short and long term.”
