President Joe Biden plans to address Congress on Wednesday evening and will outline his plan for an additional $1.8 trillion in spending.
The president will outline his proposed American Families Plan during his speech, according to the White House, an additional $1.8 trillion for free community college, free child care, paid leave, more food stamps, and free universal pre-school.
The proposed plan would spend an additional trillion while also doling out $800 billion in tax cuts.
The plan will also expand the child tax credit through 2025 and the Obamacare health insurance tax credit. The earned income tax credit would become permanent.
“The President knows we need to do more to build a stronger economy that doesn’t leave anyone behind,” a senior administration official told reporters during a conference call Tuesday. “The American Jobs Plan and the Families Plan are once-in-a-generation investments in our nation’s future.”
