US President Joe Biden to Propose ‘Family Plan’ in Speech to Congress
- Biden's administration expects that the proposal would fundamentally transform the role government plays in American life
- Biden will champion his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan in the joint address
- Biden's speech will include the promise to restore faith in government as an effective force for good
Washington: Marking his first 100 days in office, US President Joe Biden on Wednesday, will lay out a sweeping family plan in his first joint address to Congress. Two years of free community college, $225 billion for child care and monthly payments of at least $250 to parents are included in the proposal. The Biden administration thinks that such a plan would fundamentally transform the role government plays in American life.
The ideas of Joe Biden reflect the frailties that were uncovered last year by Covid-19. His speech will also provide the latest update on progress in combating the pandemic and relief checks delivered to help offset the devastation caused by a deadly virus that has killed a huge number of people in the US. Biden will also champion his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan in the joint address, which is considered a staggering figure to be financed solely by higher taxes on corporations.
The strategy of the President is somehow different. His speech will include the promise to restore faith in government as an effective force for good. For the first time in American history, a female vice president will be seated behind the chief executive for the speech. Biden is in the aim to boost IRS enforcement and requires disclosures by the financial institutions, mainly targeting the rich.
