WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden endorsed the bipartisan Covid stimulus bill currently being negotiated on Capitol Hill, calling the $908 billion proposal “a good start.”
“I think it should be passed,” Biden said during an interview Thursday on CNN. He added that after he is inaugurated in January, “I’m going to have to ask for more help when we get there to get things done.”
Biden also expressed cautious optimism about his ability to work with Senate Republicans, despite the fact that most of them have yet to even publicly acknowledge Biden as the rightful winner of the Nov. 3 presidential election.
