It’s not right that working families pay higher tax rates than the wealthiest and large corporations. We’ll fight to ensure that the wealthiest and corporations pay their fair share—and build an economy that works for everyone. That’s what the Build Back Better Agenda is about.
Join me in Prince William County this Thursday for a grassroots event with @TerryMcAuliffe as we look to move Virginia towards a brighter future.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there. Sign up now:
Secretary Colin Powell was an incredible American. An independent thinker and a barrier breaker, he dedicated his life to defending our nation and always showed the world the best of who we are.
@SecondGentleman and I send our deepest condolences to his family.
The average American family has to spend 13% of their income on child care—assuming they can even find quality care in their area.
We need to invest in families by lowering the cost of care in America.
For so many working people, child care is a prerequisite for getting to work.
But it’s not a given. We need to bring down the cost of child care for working families and invest in our future. That’s what our Build Back Better Agenda does.
By fixing our roads and bridges, replacing lead pipes, and giving working people in this country a fair shot, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and Build Back Better Agenda will make a generational investment in our country’s future.
The expanded Child Tax Credit payment that is hitting the bank accounts of working families across the country today presents real relief for so many families and children.
This progress is thanks to @JoeBiden and Democrats delivering the American Rescue Plan.
For the first time since March 2020, the unemployment rate is now below 5%.
We still have more work to do, but by continuing to increase vaccinations and passing the Build Back Better Agenda, we will get America back to work.

Thanks to President @JoeBiden’s leadership, the Department of Labor will require any business with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is vaccinated against COVID-19 or tests negative at least once per week.
Vaccine requirements save lives.
As National Voter Education Week comes to a close, here are the top things to do:
✅ Confirm your voter registration status
✅ Learn what’s on your ballot
✅ Make a voting plan
✅ Stay engaged after you vote
As we close out National Voter Education Week, remember that once you cast your ballot in an election, your work isn’t over.
Whether it’s making sure friends and family have voted; or volunteering for a campaign—every thing you do until Election Day can make a difference.
Vaccination requirements work. They drive up vaccination rates, which makes our communities and schools safer, along with strengthening our economic recovery. Vaccine requirements are widely supported, proven successful, and quickly becoming the standard across the country.
