Today, President Biden said that he is “feeling great” after two negative tests for the coronavirus that followed five days of isolation. Speaking from the Rose Garden at the White House, Biden urged other Americans to get vaccinated and boosted to increase the chances that their cases would be mild, too, if they contracted the virus. Biden said he is returning to work in the West Wing.
The Senate passed legislation that would invest $280 billion in science and technology innovation, including $52 billion for subsidies for domestic semiconductor manufacturers. The chips bill has been the subject of some drama between the two chambers but could land on Biden’s desk by the end of the week after House passage, giving Democrats something to celebrate.
