President Biden begged his party party Saturday to come together and approve his multi-trillion-dollar spending bills, assuring Democrats that his expensive agenda will “win the 21st century.”

“My message is simple: We need to stay together and bound by the values ​​we hold as a party,” Biden said in a three-minute pre-recorded speech released Saturday at the Democratic National Committee’s fall meeting.

“Because here’s the deal: we won 2020 as a united party,” Biden said. “And we look to 2022, while we do that, we need to stay united.”

Biden did not name Senate posts Joe Manchin (DW.V.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Whose opposition has stopped his $ 3.5 trillion package for social spending — or Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Who blasted the two at a burning press conference this week that put the Democrats split in the eye.

But he faithfully promised the party that his spending plans, if passed, would be praised far into the future – though some Dems resent that its high price and sharp expansion of government could cost them their congressional majority in next year’s midterm elections.

“If we deliver today across the board,” Biden promised, “50 years from now, people will look back and say this was the period, this was the moment America won the 21st century.”
