Similar quote text to tweet text:

President Biden: And as I said last night — last month, I don’t think the Court has — has any notion, for that matter — or the Republican Party, for that matter — to decide that -– how -– how far to press their extreme agenda and how women are going to respond.  They don’t have a clue about the power of American women. Last night in Congress — in Kansas, they found out.  Women and men did exercise their electoral and political power.  With a record turnout, voters of Kansas defeated a ballot initiative to remove the right to choose an abortion from the Kansas constitution.  It was in the Kansas constitution. They’re trying to strike it and eliminate it from the Kansas constitution.

The question asked of Kansas voters via the New York Times: Should the state constitution be amended to remove protections of abortion rights?

President Biden: But ultimately, Congress must codify the protections of Roe as federal law.  And if Congress fails to act, the people of this country need to elect senators and representatives who will restore Roe and will protect the right to privacy, freedom, and equality.

“Safeguard” appears twice in his remarks:

President Biden: This executive order builds on the first one I signed last month that created this task force in the first place and that also will help safeguard access to healthcare, including the right to choose and contraception.  It promotes safety and security of clinics, patients, and providers.  It protects patients’ privacy and access to accurate information.

President Biden: I believe Roe got it right, and it has been the law for close to 50 years.  And I commit to the American people that we’re doing everything in our power to safeguard access to healthcare, including the right to choose that women had under Roe v. Wade, which was ripped away by this extreme court.

President Biden: You know, I created this task force by executive order last month and — to ensure that every part of the federal government does its part at this critical moment where women’s health and lives are on the line amidst chaos and uncertainty unleashed by this decision. Emergency medical care being denied to women experiencing miscarriages.  Doctors uncertain about what they can do to provide for their patients.  Pharmacists unsure whether they can fill prescriptions that they’ve always filled before.  A tragic cases of rape survivors, including a 10-year-old girl forced to travel to another state for care.

The last two tweets from Wednesday are semi-related to remarks he gave on July 28th 2022 regarding the announced Senate Democrats Inflation Reduction Act 2022. The YouTube is 12 minutes and 7 seconds long. His full remarks can be found here.

He’s made similar statements in other remarks, but the Inflation Reduction Act remarks are the most recent. They are as I say similar not exact quote to tweet text.

President Biden: The sixth point I want to make is: This bill will not raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 a year.  And I promise — a promise I made during the campaign and one which that I ha- — that I’ve have kept.

“Fair share” appears twice in his remarks.

President Biden: It’ll also, for the first time in a long time, begin to restore fairness to the tax code — begin to restore fairness — by making the largest corporatenations [sic] — the largest corporations in America pay their fair share, with any — without any new taxes on people making under $400,000 a year. 

President Biden: Fourth, this bill requires the largest corporations to begin to — begin to pay toward their fair share of taxes by putting in place a 15 percent corporate minimum tax.

President Biden has tweeted…

He’s tweeted 1 time so far for Thursday…

I found these tweets interesting…

It is a good reminder that not all data is equal nor is it collected the same. This can be said for the impending Jobs Report (which drops tomorrow). When a payroll company says ‘we’ve wrote this many payroll checks,’ they aren’t lying, but it’s only a glimpse of what the Jobs Report might show, considering not all surveyed companies use the same payroll company.

President Biden’s remarks are scheduled for 1:45 p.m. D.C., time.

The daily press briefing is scheduled for 2:45 p.m. D.C., time.

This is an Open Thread.
