The “infrastructure law” can be found here.
From the White House:
Upgrade our power infrastructure to deliver clean, reliable energy across the country and deploy cutting-edge energy technology to achieve a zero-emissions future.
According to the Department of Energy, power outages cost the U.S. economy up to $70 billion annually. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s more than $65 billion investment includes the largest investment in clean energy transmission and grid in American history. It will upgrade our power infrastructure, by building thousands of miles of new, resilient transmission lines to facilitate the expansion of renewables and clean energy, while lowering costs. And it will fund new programs to support the development, demonstration, and deployment of cutting-edge clean energy technologies to accelerate our transition to a zero-emission economy.
The White House has a full breakdown of the bill here.
The below YouTube is 12 minutes and 5 seconds long. His full remarks can be found here.
President Biden: Today, I’m directing my team to work with Pfizer to double our order from 10 million to 20 million treatment courses to be delivered in the months ahead. We may need even more. That’s the estimate we need right now. We’ve already placed the largest order in the world; now I’m doubling that order. These pills are going to dramatically recrease [sic] — decrease hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19. They’re a game-changer and have the potential to dramatically alter the impact of COVID-19 — the impact it’s had on this country and our people.
President Biden: Countries across the world are seeing rising cases. Here in the United States, our team has been working around the clock during the holiday weeks.In the last two weeks, we have developed hundreds of military — we have deployed, I should say, hundreds of military doctors and nurses to staff the hospitals in our states that are overrun and overworked because of unvaccinated COVID-19 patients, primarily.
President Biden: We’ve shipped nearly 2.4 million pieces of protective equipment to hospitals, from gowns to gloves. And we’re doing whatever we can to protect communities from the surge of hospital cases that we’re likely to see from unvac- — from the unvaccinated population.
President Biden: Omicron is very transmissible — transmissible variant, but much different than anything we’ve seen before. And — but you can protect yourself. And you should protect yourself, quite frankly. Get vaccinated. Get boosted. There’s plenty of booster shots. Wear a mask while you’re in public.
WEDNESDAY’S 1ST TWEET:
President Biden: Folks, I know we’re all tired and frustrated about the pandemic. These coming weeks are going to be challenging. Please wear your mask in public to protect yourself and others. We’re going to get through this. We’re going to get through it together. We have the tools to protect people from severe illness due to Omicron if people choose to use the tools. We have the medicines coming along that can save so many lives and dramatically reduce the impact that COVID has had on our country.
WEDNESDAY’S 2nd TWEET:
President Biden: Second, on testing: I know this remains frustrating — believe me, it’s frustrating to me — but we’re making improvements. In the last two weeks, we’ve stood up federal testing sites all over the country, and we’re adding more each and every day. Google “COVID test near me” — go there. Google — excuse me — “COVID test near me” on Google to find the nearest site where you can get a test most often and free. Look, we have more capacity for in-person tests, and we should see waiting lines shorten and more appointments freed up.
