FOX: “Joe Biden arguably has had the best 10 days of his presidency.”

CNN: “Suddenly he is one of the most consequential legislative presidents since LBJ in his first two years in office.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. — From the Inflation Reduction Act to the CHIPS Act to the PACT Act to bipartisan gun safety legislation and more, President Biden is delivering historic wins for working families. Since taking office, he has overseen the fastest economic recovery in American history, and now he’s building on that progress through legislation that will further lower costs, create jobs, and boost American manufacturing. Thanks to President Biden’s leadership, families will be able to get medication at prices they can afford, energy bills will go down as we tackle the climate crisis, supply chains are being brought back to the U.S., and good-paying union jobs are being created across the country. That’s delivering for the American people.

But don’t just take our word for it. See what others are saying about President Biden’s wins for working families:

FOX: Howard Kurtz, Host, ‘Media Buzz’: “Joe Biden arguably has had the best 10 days of his presidency. We just talked about al-Zawahiri, also passing all this legislation, not just the reconciliation bill you referred to, but a lot of bipartisan stuff — the CHIPS Act for example — to make us more competitive with China.”

MSNBC: Joe Scarborough, Host, ‘Morning Joe’: “You look at these Democrats: a 50-50 split Senate. And you’ll look at Joe Biden. Suddenly you have this huge climate change plan. This huge plan to lower drug costs, to help Medicare recipients. Well, the head of the Republican Senate is talking about taxing– increasing costs for Medicare and Social Security and taxing poor and middle class Americans. You’ve got this. You’ve got an economic rescue plan that’s led to the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years. You’ve got a massive bipartisan infrastructure plan that was passed. You’ve got the first significant gun safety legislation passed in over a decade. We’ve got the Electoral Count Act that was reformed to prevent future January 6ths, you got the China competitiveness bill — $280 billion to make sure that we can have a stronger semiconductor manufacturing base in America so we’re not dependent on China, confirmation of the first Black woman to the U.S. Supreme Court. And then this package, Mika, which is landmark. There is no doubt. You look at what happened in the ten years before Joe Biden stepped into the White House, the last six years of President Obama’s administration and Donald Trump’s time in the White House. Joe Biden has done more than them, not combined, two, three, four, five, six, seven times.  This has been an extraordinarily successful two years legislatively, any way you cut it. Even Republicans have to admit this privately, and they are. It’s been a hell of a run.”

CNN: Brianna Keilar, Host, ‘New Day’: “Suddenly he is one of the most consequential legislative presidents since LBJ in his first two years in office. The Inflation Reduction Act…represents the largest investment to combat the climate crisis in US history, nearly $370 billion. It also makes major changes to health policy such as giving Medicare the power to negotiate the prices of some prescription drugs. President Biden also signed the sweeping $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan into law in March of last year, intended to bolster the US recovery from the pandemic. Then, in November, the bipartisan infrastructure bill became law, enacting a key piece of the domestic spending agenda.”

CNN: John Berman, Host, ‘New Day’: “The infrastructure bill – bipartisan, as have been a string of key votes this summer. The Senate approved NATO expansion to include Sweden and Finland, a harsh rebuke to Russia. The first major federal gun safety legislation passed in decades, bipartisan, and includes incentivizing red flag laws, it closes the boyfriend loophole and funds crisis intervention programs, including mental health courts. And tomorrow, President Biden is expected to sign the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act, boosting U.S. semiconductor production in the making of cars, household appliances, and computers. Also this week he’s expected to sign a bipartisan bill enhancing health care and disability benefits for millions of veterans exposed to toxic burn pits.”

CNN: David Chalian, CNN Political Director: “This is a proof point now that Joe Biden could say, I have put together a string of bipartisan, significant, bipartisan victories here in terms of legislation, more so than recent administrations, and that this is something I promised: a different kind of politics.”

CNBC: Former U.S. Representative Donna Edwards: “This is a big win for [President] Biden, and I think, as you described, it comes on the heels of several really big policy victories over this last month. On top of that, adding, you know, jobs into the economy, which is outpacing anything that we’ve seen, and so what the bill does is it provides consumers with something real and something tangible.”

ABC: Rachel Scott, Congressional Correspondent: “Senate Democrats banded together to get the president’s economic agenda across the finish line […] with every Republican opposed, […] handing President Biden a political victory by a razor-thin majority, passing a sweeping economic package aimed at combating climate change, inflation, and lowering the cost of prescription drugs. […] Democrats reached a breakthrough rallying behind a roughly $740 billion bill that would make the largest climate investment in US history, provide tax credits to buy electric vehicles, lower premiums for Americans buying their own health insurance, and make prescription drugs more affordable for seniors, capping out-of-pocket expenses at $2,000. All of that would be paid for by increasing taxes on top corporations.”

NBC: Kelly O’Donnell, Senior White House Correspondent: “It comes at a time when the President has a series of positive events to tout, including a surprisingly high jobs number, a successful intelligence mission that killed the leader of al Qaeda and a bipartisan piece of legislation that will bring high-tech manufacturing jobs to the U.S.”

CBS: Ed O’Keefe, Senior White House Correspondent: “No matter how you slice it, this has been one of the most successful stretches of the Biden presidency. In addition to the health and climate bill expected to be passed later this week, consider all the other things that they’ve gotten done. There was the passage of major legislation boosting the nation’s high-tech manufacturing sector, and a plan to provide federal aid to military veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins, both of which the president plans to sign this week. Those follow passage this summer of a major gun control and mental health bill. And internationally, there’s the Senate approval of a plan to let Finland and Sweden join NATO, as well as the successful killing of al-Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. CBS News has learned that on the legislation.
