“My message is this: we must remember what got us to the White House in the first place. We won in 2020 as a unified party, perhaps more unified than ever. As we look to 2022, we must stick together, ”Biden said during remarks at a Democratic National Committee virtual grassroots event.
“We need to remember that the American people sent us here to deliver to improve their lives,” he said.
Biden used the virtual appearance to promote the bipartisan infrastructure bill that the House recently passed, after months of delay as Democrats tried to resolve disagreements over their national agenda.

Biden noted that the bill also received Republican support.
The infrastructure vote represented a major victory for the White House, even as six progressive Democrats broke with the party to vote against the bill and express their disgust at the lack of a final vote on a broader social spending package and climate. Thirteen Republicans voted for the infrastructure bill in the House and it received overwhelming bipartisan support in the Senate when it went to a vote in August.
The social spending package is expected to be approved by the House sometime next week, but obstacles remain due to reservations expressed by the Sen.
