Biden address live updates: President tells Americans to get vaccinated in address to joint session of Congress

0


President Joe Biden touted his $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan proposal, calling it a “once-in-a-generation investment in America itself” and the largest jobs plan since World War II.

The plan, which would be paid for primarily by a corporate tax increase, would include upgrades in transportation infrastructure such as roads, bridges, highways and airports as well as broadband internet and replacing lead pipes.

It would also seek to expand caregiving for seniors and people with disabilites, among other investments in what the Biden administration has called “human infrastructure.”

“This plan will help these families and create jobs for our caregivers with better wages and better benefits,” he said. “For too long, we have failed to use the most important word when it comes to meeting the climate crisis.”
