Heading into @COP26, President Biden announced the Build Back Better Framework – the largest effort to combat climate change in American history alongside his Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal.

Here's how these bills deliver on our climate goals, lower costs, and create jobs:
First, what are our climate goals?

President Biden is committed to reaching a 100% carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035 and achieving a net-zero economy by no later than 2050 – all while creating good paying, union jobs at home.
The Build Back Better Framework delivers clean energy rebates for consumers — lowering the costs of electric vehicles by $12,500 and cutting the cost of installing rooftop solar for a home by around 30 percent.

New: Tens of millions of Americans are now eligible for booster shots. Those who received Pfizer or Moderna and are 65 and older, at high-risk for severe COVID, work in a high-risk job or live in a high-risk setting can get a booster, at least 6 months after their 2nd shot.
If you’re one of the 15 million people who got J&J, you’re eligible for a booster – you can get another dose of J&J, or either Pfizer or Moderna boosters at least two months after your shot.
The FDA and CDC have determined these booster shots are safe and effective, based on the latest data and evidence, after a thorough, independent and transparent review process.

If you look at the world’s advanced economies, those countries invest an average of $14,000 per year for a toddler’s child care. America invests about $500 per year — less than 4% of what our competitors invest.

Here’s what that does to our economy:
30 years ago, the U.S. ranked 7th among advanced economies in the share of women working. Now, we rank 23rd and are losing out on more than $500B of additional economic activity per year.

The Build Back Better Agenda will cut child care costs and help parents get back to work.
The President's Build Back Better Agenda will ensure that no middle class family will pay more than 7% of their income on child care for young children.

This is about more than giving working families a break. It’s about positioning our country to compete for the long haul.

Today, the White House hosted 97 teachers from all over the country to celebrate their work and present them with 2020 and 2021 Teacher of the Year awards.

Here's what a few teachers had to say about what inspires them, and what their favorite part of the job is: THREAD
Chanda Jefferson, 2020 South Carolina Teacher of the Year, recalls how her high school Chemistry teacher — her only African American science teacher — ignited her love of STEM and inspired her to become an educator too.
Owen Bondono, 2021 Michigan Teacher of the Year says other great teachers, including his sister and 6th grade teacher, inspired him to teach. "Her small actions every day in the 6th grade, made me feel special... and made me want to help other people feel that same way."
