Vice President Kamala Harris Delivers First Extended Economic Speech

Yesterday, Vice President Kamala Harris delivered her first extended economic speech. During the speech at the Gilford Technical Community College in North Carolina, she discussed the Biden Administration’s $2 trillion Infrastructure Plan and talked about what it would do for infrastructure jobs, water infrastructure, child and home care businesses, broadband, and job training. She called it a ‘once in a lifetime, once in a generation investment in America’s infrastructure– in America’s future, it is what the American people deserve.’ She also highlighted the White House’s accomplishments since Biden took office during the speech. Recently, Harris has taken part in meetings with the Congressional Black Caucus as well as with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. According to the White House, Harris will continue traveling the country to promote the plan in the next few weeks.
