This morning, we’ve realized that our financial system created 900,000 jobs in March. Means the primary two months of our administration has seen extra new jobs created than the primary two months in any administration in historical past. But we nonetheless have an extended option to go to get our financial system again on observe after the worst financial and job disaster in almost a century. But my message to the American individuals is that this: Help is right here. But as we get the financial system again on its ft, we have to do the arduous work of constructing again higher for good, for — not only for some time — however for good. Not simply the brief time period, however for good. That’s why I proposed the American Jobs Plan on Wednesday in Pittsburgh. An eight-year program that invests in our roads, our bridges, broadband, airports, ports and fixing our water methods. It’s going to restore our V.A. hospitals throughout the nation, many of them are greater than 50 years outdated, and are in actual want of assist. It will spend money on analysis and growth to outcompete China and the remainder of the world. Independent evaluation reveals that if we cross this plan, the financial system will create 19 million jobs — good jobs, blue-collar jobs, jobs that pay properly. Inaction is just not an possibility. The American individuals have been promised actionable infrastructure for many years. They’ve been promised that after our leaders would take our nation and make it extra aggressive, for many years. I’ve made my plan to handle this lengthy overdue want. And it’s clear: Polls already present robust assist for infrastructure funding from the American individuals, whether or not they’re Democrats, Republicans or independents. Congress ought to debate my plan. Change it and supply options in the event that they suppose that’s what they must do. But Congress ought to act.
