The American Rescue Plan Act, enacted in March last year, was a two trillion dollar package that included fourteen hundred dollars checks per adult, an expanded child tax credit for a year with two hundred to three hundred dollars monthly checks per child, extended unemployment benefits, and expanded eligibility for healthcare benefits, among other things.

The Biden Administration has maintained America’s support for Nicaraguan civil society organizations, human rights, and free elections in the face of a government accused of human rights violations, political repression, and corruption.

Job growth trends, which are usually good news for Americans of all political stripes, haven’t changed Biden’s dismal popularity ratings when it comes to the economy.

That is the dilemma for President Joe Biden, whose announcement of historic job growth and a low unemployment rate of four percent on Friday morning was delivered between clenched teeth by a leader who appears annoyed that he has to explain to the public why the figures are positive. In remarks at the White House, Biden claimed that more than six and a half million jobs had been created since he took office, including five hundred thousand in January this year, significantly more than the little increase or possible loss of up to three hundred thousand jobs that were predicted.
