Biden to Ohio, spotlighting rescued pensions for millions

President Joe Biden tried to win over disgruntled blue-collar voters on Wednesday.

They will persuade workers that his plans will stabilize the precarious pension money for millions of people who are currently employed or retired against the backdrop of a union training facility in Cleveland.

Affected politically by pandemic-related losses and inflation at a 40-year high, the president is focusing his message to workers in Ohio, a former election hotspot.

With Donald Trump comfortably winning it twice, Ohio has been significantly going Republican.

Additionally, Biden is making his fourth trip as president as he works to personally turn the political tide.

The timing of Biden's address at the Local 17 Training Center for Iron Workers coincides with the publication of a final administrative rule linked to his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan from the previous year.

Full benefits for 2 million to 3 million employees and retirees are guaranteed by the rule, which enables troubled multi-company pensions to be made financially whole.

Two administration sources who insisted on anonymity provided details of Biden's remarks in order to preview his speech.
