It’s Wednesday.

For Wednesday, July 21st, 2021, President Biden has received his daily brief. This afternoon President Biden will travel to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he will discuss his Build Back Better agenda. Tonight, President Biden will participate in a town hall hosted by CNN moderated by Don Lemon.

He has tweeted 3 times so far for Wednesday.

The video is 54 seconds long and is a clip taken from his remarks Monday on the economy.

President Biden: As I made clear to Chairman Powell of the Federal Reserve when we met recently, the Fed is independent.  It should take whatever steps it deems necessary to support a strong, durable economic recovery.  But whatever different views some might have on current price increases, we should be united on one thing: passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework, which we shook hands on.  We shook hands on it.  And my Build Back Better plan will be a force for achieving lower prices for Americans looking ahead.  It’s another reason why these investments are so important. *If we make a prudent, multi-year investments in better roads, bridges, transit systems, and high-speed Internet, and a modern, resilient electric grid, here’s what will happen: It breaks up the bottlenecks in our economy.  Goods get to consumers more rapidly and less expensively.  Small businesses create and innovate much more seamlessly.  If we increase the availability of quality, affordable childcare, eldercare, paid leave, more people will enter the workforce. These steps will enhance our productivity — raising wages without raising prices.  That won’t increase inflation.  It will take the pressure off of inflation, give a boost to our workforce, which leads to lower prices in the years ahead. So, if your primary concern right now is inflation, you should be even more enthusiastic about this plan.

*I included the full context of his remarks, the * notes where the video begins.*

The Build Back Better plan includes; the already passed American Rescue Plan, the American Jobs Plan which is now the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework, and the American Families Plan.

I think they still include the American Jobs Plan, because it contains the Made in American tax plan, that President Biden says would “fully pay for the American Jobs Plan within 15 years, if passed alongside one another.”

As an aside: He’s not only sharing his Build Back Better plan tweets this early (it’s early for him, he normally doesn’t post tweets until later in the day), because he will offer remarks about the plan this evening and in prime time.

It’s also because expected sometime today, the Senate will vote on whether to begin the debate process to pass the Bipartisan Framework.

CNN reported that Republicans are expected to block the vote on Wednesday.

Republican senators told Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in a letter on Tuesday to postpone the vote until they secure a bipartisan agreement and write the bill. A Senate GOP source with direct knowledge of the matter told CNN all 50 Republicans would likely vote no on Wednesday, but expected that all of the issues would be resolved by Monday, and at least 10 Republican senators would support advancing the legislation then.

Schumer, a Democrat from New York, set up a test vote to open debate on the legislation, arguing that the vote would simply set the stage for considering the bill once negotiators have finalized the agreement.

“I understand that both sides are working very hard to turn the bipartisan infrastructure framework into final legislation, and they will continue to have more time to debate, amend and perfect the bill once the Senate votes to take up this crucial issue,” Schumer said. “But they have been working on this bipartisan framework for more than a month already, and it’s time to begin the debate.”

CNN. 07/20/2021.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said yesterday; Finally, I just wanted to note: We support — there’s been, of course, some activity on the Hill I’m sure we’ll talk about — we support Senator Schumer’s efforts to move forward on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework and very much appreciate the hard work until late in the night, including last night, by both Democratic and Republican senators to resolve open issues. Progress is continuing to be made thanks to all of the hard work, and we back Senator Schumer’s effort to get this to the floor as quickly as possible.

Reminder: The bill is not written, right now, they have a bipartisan framework on what areas the Republicans and Democrats can agree to have in the Infrastructure bill when it’s finally written.

In his third tweet for Wednesday, he congratulated the winning NBA team for winning the NBA Championship.

When Biden Bits for Tuesday was published President Biden had tweeted 1 time. He added 6 tweets giving him a Tuesday Tweeting Total of 7 tweets and 0 retweets.

He issued another tweet regarding the Buccaneers visit to the White House.

I’m really sorry Janedoe, but I must do this…

Yesterday, Buccaneers QB Tom Brady *spit* made a joke at the expense of Impeached Twice 45…

I don’t know if Impeached Twice 45 reacted *checks website not gonna link* nothing that I saw. But I do know it triggered at least some Impeached Twice 45 fans…

Some comments from the article:

I hope the NFL dies…

Well, she is an annoying player anyway. So who cares…

Americans mocking other Americans surely can’t be good.
It means the politicians and media are being successful in dividing Americans.
Let’s remember we are not the problem…they are…

So very disappointed Tom… Your skills on the field where the only nfl I’ve watched in the last few years… Apparently you don’t like half the country either and feel compelled to degrade and disparage us.. just like the rest of the liberal lunatics!! I know you feel compelled to make more money…. as your millions, upon millions apparently isn’t enough for you and your family and you must kiss the ass of the liberal elites…. So sad to see you fall so far and so fast!! An NO NFL will be on a single tv in my house.. ever again.. not even for you Tom!…

I see a bunch of snowflakes.

Anyhoo, moving on to the other tweets.

There was a pool spray prior to the meeting.

The video is 6 minutes and 44 seconds long. His full remarks can be found here.

YouTube made me do it.

The video is 18 seconds long. The video is a snip of remarks he gave Monday regarding the economy.

President Biden: We also know that as our economy has come roaring back, we’ve seen some price increases.  Some folks have raised worries that this could be a sign of persistent inflation.  But that’s not our view.  Our experts believe and the data shows that most of the price increases we’ve seen are — were expected and expected to be temporary.

The text in the tweet is also from the same remarks appearing right under the video shared remarks; The reality is, you can’t flip the global economic light back on and not expect this to happen.  As demand returns, there’s going to be global supply chain challenges.  We’ve seen that in semi-conductors, which are used in automobiles.  That global shortage has slowed vehicle production, creating a temporary spike in car prices.  That’s a real challenge.  And my administration is doing everything we can to address it.  But again, these disruptions are temporary. 

The daily White House press briefing will be held as a press gaggle on Airforce One.

So far, the White House hasn’t posted a video for President Biden’s remarks from Ohio prior to his CNN town hall.

This is an open thread

If there is a legit stream available for President Biden’s town hall, it will likely appear in the Note for this evening. Usually, there isn’t one, as CNN doesn’t share their feeds.
