            DEMOCRATS CREATING NEW ECONOMY WITH RECORD JOBS

  (Ms. NORTON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Ms. NORTON. Madam Speaker, this month's job report gives Americans 
something to cheer about. Unemployment is down a full 2 percentage 
points under Democratic congressional and Presidential leadership since 
President Biden took office. The corollary to this impressive 
unemployment figure is the record 6 million jobs created, a record for 
a new President.
  With the signing of the new transportation and infrastructure bill, 
more jobs, for example, in my own district, the District of Columbia, 
are on the way--$1.1 billion for roads and bridges.
  Build Back Better promises even more economic dividends. Analysts say 
Build Back Better is the biggest cost-cutting bill for the middle class 
in modern American history. With costs down, job growth will be 
spurred.
  Democrats are creating a new economy featuring record jobs for the 
American people.
