Biden says he will start working on coronavirus relief during transition if elected

Source: Politico

Joe Biden pledged Friday that if elected president he will begin reaching out to state and local leaders during the transition to begin crafting a coronavirus relief bill that he could sign by the end of January.

In remarks in Wilmington, Del., after the final presidential debate, the Democratic nominee said he would look to gauge “what support they need and how much of it they need.”

“I'll ask the new Congress to put a bill on my desk by the end of January with all the resources to see how both our public health and economic response can be seen through the end, what is needed,” he said.

Biden again skewered President Donald Trump’s handling of the virus, reprising key lines of attack he made during Thursday night’s debate. And in pledging to sign off on a relief bill within weeks of assuming office, he offered a contrast to the slow-going response of the Trump administration.

3. IMO

I Think he’s got a lot of transition teams all ready to go. No victory vacation. Too much work to do.

4. Competency is On the Ballot In Addition to Character

Biden has run a near flawless campaign. That's no small feat. I have every confidence that he will also run his transition and then administration using a highly qualified and competent team.

5. Agreed

When this started I really didn't see a means to even run a campaign in the middle of a pandemic, but as you said this one has been nearly flawless.

6. Hopefully we will win, but I don't think it will be a smooth transition.
