WASHINGTON, Sept 24 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday said he recognized spending bills to address infrastructure and other spending were at a standstill in Congress despite his fellow Democrats' majorities, but said he was confident the measures would pass.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Biden acknowledged his economic plan "has been very much curtailed by a whole range of things" and would take some time, but said both the bipartisan infrastructure bill and Democrats' budget bill needed to be enacted.
