President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and The Democrats face a growing battle for the soul of our American nation. They’re working to restore faith in The USA, just like President Roosevelt did during the Depression.

POTUS bolstered his counter-bet on the use of expansive federal power to ease America's crises. Meanwhile, Biden names Chris Inglis to the new position of national cyber director. Inglis, a former NSA deputy director, is being nominated as the government's first national cyber director. Jen Easterly, a former deputy for counterterrorism at the NSA, has been tapped to run the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security. The two officials are expected to work closely with Anne Neuberger, the administration's deputy national security adviser for cyber and emerging technology. 

The Government has also accelerated the pace of vaccinations, setting another 24-hour record for reported doses administered. President Joe Biden’s team cranked up the sales job on the next stage of his effort to beat a longer-term malaise -- a $2 trillion infrastructure package meant to ease the pain of working Americans who have consistently lost out in an economy that has favored the wealthy.

Biden and Harris will continue to negotiate with competing interests, Some Democrats are calling for big changes, while Republicans who want to slash key parts of the proposal and US Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Virginia makes the slim Democratic majority in the Senate increasingly difficult for his party to move forward.

President Bien will meet with a bipartisan group of U.S. House and Senate lawmakers to promote his proposed $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan. It aims to rebuild the nation's aging infrastructure, support electric vehicles and clean energy and boost access to caregivers and their pay. This comprehensive bill will likely face an uphill battle, chugging its way through both chambers of Congress.

Destruction is faster and easier than building and Americans need to realize that change is coming, but some feel it is too slow in materializing for many who feel forgotten.
