Rural America was the target for at least three cabinet members and the president himself this week. 


The Biden Administration fanned out across rural America this week aiming to beef up credentials on issues aimed at governing with an eye towards reelection. 

This stop at a Minnesota family farm served as the backdrop for Biden’s message.

President Joe Biden: “Folks, Bidenomics is just another way of saying the American dream. Forty years ago, trickle-down economics limited the dream to those at the top. But I believe every American willing to work hard should be able to get a job, no matter where they live in the heartland in small towns, raise their kids on a good paycheck and keep the roots when I grew up.” 

The president announced $5 billion in spending on better adapting agriculture to climate change, expanding rural high-speed internet and making improvements to infrastructure.

President Joe Biden: “All that means good jobs, good jobs in rural America. The bottom line is this. Instead of exporting jobs overseas for cheaper labor, now we're creating jobs here and expanding American products and selling them overseas.”

Biden also says he’s making the biggest investment in rural electrification providing grants and loans to rural electric cooperatives.
