Biden has done a lot for this country

To the editor:

What has Joe Biden accomplished? A lot. The previous administration attempted to pass an infrastructure bill, however despite having the majority in the House and Senate, was unable to do so. By working together with Republicans, skillfully negotiating and compromising, Joe Biden signed the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act with the support of 17 House Republicans and 18 Republican Senators, including Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham. Why would they do that? Because it is GOOD for the country.

According to NBC News in Miami, Florida will get about $19 billion for roads and bridges, new rail lines, projects to mitigate sea level rise, improved broadband access and transitioning neighborhoods from septic to sewer. That’s huge for homeowners, as it raises their property values while simultaneously protecting the aquifer we all rely on for drinking water.

It also includes funding to restore and protect aquatic ecosystems – the goal of Captains for Clean Water. It’s a big win for Florida and for our country.

Biden has shown the power of bipartisanship by getting done what 4 years of bitter fighting could not. Way to go!
