First Phase of Biden Infrastructure Plan to Include Billions for Schools, Child Care Centers and Broadband
April 2, 2021
President Joe Biden unveiled half of his massive infrastructure proposal at a Pittsburgh carpentry training center Wednesday afternoon - a $2 trillion American Jobs Plan that includes building and upgrading schools and child care facilities as well as extending broadband service to all Americans.
While calling on Republicans to support tax hikes on corporations and the wealthy to get the plan through Congress, he also hinted he expects the proposal to face strong opposition.
"Critics say we shouldn't spend this money," he said, but added, "There's no reason why it can't be bipartisan."
