Hope and Opportunities

The January jobs report showed the U.S. added 467,000 jobs. Impressive numbers. The jobs report also revised the numbers for November and December upward by more than 700,000. The first 12 months of Biden’s presidency mark the best job creation on record.

With more than 6.6 million jobs since Biden took office, Biden created more jobs than any other year in history.  The unemployment rate is at 4.0%.

My hometown of Spartanburg, South Carolina plans to improve the quality of life in Spartanburg County with $62 million in federal funds. Biden’s American Rescue will fix roads, improving water and sewer, and expand broadband in the county.

David Britt is Chairman of Economic Development. He said:

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to change Spartanburg forever.”

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee passed a resolution unanimously to censure the two Republican representatives on the January 6 committee: Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).

Ahead of the party vote, Cheney said:

“Leaders of the Republican Party have made themselves willing hostages to a man who admits he tried to overturn a presidential election and suggests he would pardon Jan. 6 defendants…some of whom have been charged with seditious conspiracy. I’m a constitutional conservative and I do not recognize those in my party who have abandoned the Constitution to embrace Donald Trump. History will be their judge.”
