A week later than planned; President Biden’s remarks…

When Monday’s post was posted, President Biden had tweeted two times. He added 10 tweets giving him a Monday Tweeting Total of 12 tweets and 0 retweets.

The YouTube is 26 minutes and 28 seconds long. President Biden begins his remarks at the 3 minute and 14 second mark. His full remarks can be found here.

President Biden: (8:18) We’re turning “Infrastructure Week” in — from a punchline that my — that was my predecessor, into an “Infrastructure Decade” on our watch.

President Biden: (8:38) It’s called the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and it’s the most significant — this is a fact — the most significant investment since President Eisenhower’s Interstate Highway System.  The most significant investment.  (Applause.)  And your members of Congress got it done.

President Biden: (13:26) Folks, America invented modern aviation, but we’ve allowed our airports to lag behind our competitors.  Today — today, not a single, solitary American airport — not one — ranks in the top 25 in the world.  The United States of America, not one airport ranks in the top 25 in the world.  What in the hell is the matter with us? 

President Biden: (15:19) And we’re not only doing this here in Boston.  With this new law, across the country we’re investing $25 billion — $25 billion to modify our airports, from airports serving small towns like Turners Fall Airport in Western Massachusetts to major cities like Boston.  It matters.

Semi-remark to tweet text:

President Biden: (15:08) Just imagine walking in here when the construction is done — a bright, modern terminal.  You’ll know you’re in the 21st century in the greatest country in the world and one of the finest cities in the country.

President Biden: (22:14) Well, look, the fact is that there’s a lot — a lot we can do, a lot we have to do.  You know, the fact is that, right now, with this Infrastructure Law, America is really getting on the move again. Let me close by saying that we’re moving, and your life is going to change for the better.  You know, as I said, when you think about who we are and describe — like, think about — go back to the way your mother or father would explain to you what America was like 50 years ago.  There’s no question there wasn’t a damn thing we couldn’t do if we set our mind to it.

President Biden: (24:55) And so, folks, together, I really believe that we’re building a better America, not because of Joe Biden, not because the Democrats, and not because — but because of who we are as a people.  We the people. 

The YouTube is 31 minutes and 48 seconds long. President Biden begins his remarks at the 6 minute and 11 second mark. His full remarks can be found here.

President Biden: (17:38) In February, I laid out our plan that is bold, ambitious, and, I might add, completely doable. The goal is to cut cancer death rates by at least 50 percent — at least 50 percent — in the next 25 years; to turn more cancers from death sentences into chronic diseases people can live with; to create a more supportive experience for our patients and families; and to update — to update our fight against the cancer.

President Biden: (20:02) As part of the supercharged Moonshot, I’ll use my authorities as President to increase funding to break logjam — break logjams and to speed breakthroughs. I’ve also formed a new Cancer Cabinet that is driving a whole-of-government effort to unleash every possible asset within our power — from NASA, that knows more about radiation than any doctor does; to the Defense Department, that has the ability to calculate; and to the Energy Department — do a million billion calculations per second.

President Biden: (11:02) And I believe we can usher in the same unwillingness to postpone, the same national purpose that will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills to end cancer as we know it and even cure cancers once and for all. (Applause.)

President Biden: (9:48) And in choosing to go to the Moon, President Kennedy said America was doing so, quote, “not because [it was] easy, but because [it was] hard, because [the] goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are” willing — not — “one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.”
“Unwilling to postpone.” President Kennedy. “Unwilling to postpone.” President Kennedy set a goal to win the Space Race against Russia and advance science and technology for all of humanity. And when he set that goal, he established a national purpose that could rally the American people in a common cause. And he succeeded.

President Biden has tweeted 3 times so far for Tuesday…

The clip is 1 minute and 16 seconds long.

President Biden: When I look at the horizon, I see possibilities. Possibilities that build on our dreams and our hopes–possibilities where every American can get a fair shot. Our days haven’t always been easy. But we didn’t give up. We got to work. Together, we achieved something great. With the Inflation Reduction Act, we beat special interests and we are bringing more possibilities to millions of Americans. We are lowering health insurance costs, prescription drug costs, confronting the climate crisis, building the future here in America, and ensuring that the biggest corporations begin to pay their fair share in taxes. Because presidents should be judged not by their words, but by their deeds. Inflation Reduction Act is proof that the soul of America is vibrant. The future of America is bright, and the possibilities of America are real. And this is just the beginning.

The dots on the home’s picture are clickable. When clicked a little pop-up appears to explain how the Inflation Reduction Act will help…

Electric Vehicle

The Inflation Reduction Act will help more families never pay at the pump again, with tax credits up to $7,500 for new electric vehicles and $4,000 for used electric vehicles – saving families an average of $950 a year on fuel costs.

Rooftop Solar

The Inflation Reduction Act will help more Americans harness the sun’s energy to power their homes with clean electricity and save big on utility bills. Tax credits are available now to cover up to 30% of the installation costs – and this federal credit can be paired with additional incentives available in many states. The average family will save $300 per year, or $9,000 over the life of the system.
