President Biden claimed credit Thursday for putting a pandemic-battered U.S. economy back on track — proclaiming that “the Biden economic plan is working.” He also used a speech in Ohio to urge Congress to make “generational investments” in education and infrastructure to keep the country competitive.

“Now’s the time to build on the foundation that we’ve laid to make bold investments in our families and our communities and our nation,” Biden said at a community college in Cleveland.
