President Joe Biden to Mark the Day That Tens of Millions of Families Will Get Their First Monthly Child Tax Credit Relief Payments
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Thank you. Well, for you — anybody under the age of 13 — this has got to be boring, boring, boring for you. (Laughter.) Right? Well, I’ll tell you what, we have to work something out here so that when this is over, your parents, your uncles, your aunts — whoever you’re with — they owe you some ice cream or something for this. You know? (Laughter.)
Folks, it’s a pleasure to be here. I’m going to take a sip here. (Drinks water.) And this — I believe this is actually a historic day — a historic day in the sense that we continue to build an economy that respects and recognizes the dignity of working-class families and middle-class families.
