Washington, D.C. – President Biden delivered his first address to a Joint Session of Congress on Wednesday night, leading with remarks focused on building support for his American Jobs Plan and other efforts to ensure the United States will “win the 21st century.”

Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul said:

We are thrilled President Biden focused on jobs, jobs, jobs. Transformational investments in our future—from roads and bridges to broadband and the energy grid—will make our nation more competitive and create well-paying, middle-class jobs. Beyond that, the president’s commitment to Buy American is profoundly important to the future of manufacturing. We look forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration and Congress to get America back to work.  

“A ‘blue collar blueprint to build America’ is indeed the right course for our future.”
