'Now is the time we should be spending': Biden pitches $1.9 trillion COVID relief


MILWAUKEE — President Joe Biden took center stage at Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater Tuesday night to make the case for his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package and spur Americans to remain vigilant against the pandemic.

In his first major political trip outside Washington, D.C., as president, Biden vowed that he was committed to passing the relief legislation, claiming it would create “7 million jobs this year” and that “the economy now has to be dealt with.” 

“Now is the time we should be spending. Now is the time to go big,” he said during a town hall broadcast by CNN and attended by a socially distant group of Wisconsin voters.

Asked when the country will get back to normal, Biden said experts warned him to “be careful not to predict things.”
