We need to build an economy that gives working people a fair shot. We need to restore fairness to our tax code. We need to make long overdue investments in our infrastructure. We need to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and my Build Back Better Agenda.
Press Sec. Jen Psaki sat down to answer your questions about the President’s Build Back Better Agenda.
Here’s the topline: The plan will benefit workers and families by lowering taxes and bringing down the cost of health care, child care, housing, and higher education.
We’re facing an inflection point with the climate crisis — and the time to act is now. This morning, I reconvened the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate to discuss our progress here at home and how we can rally the world to tackle this crisis with the urgency it demands.
Today in this country, the top 1% evade an estimated $160 billion in taxes each year.
55 of the most profitable corporations in America pay zero dollars in federal income taxes on $40 billion in profit.
It just isn’t right — and my economic plan will change it.
Immigrants come to America from different circumstances, but every generation has made us stronger. This Citizenship Day serves as a reminder that it’s up to us to ensure we remain a country worthy of the dreams and aspirations of immigrants from around the world.
This is our opportunity to be the nation we know we can and should be.
A nation where all of us — not just those at the top — get to share in the benefits of a growing economy in the years ahead.
Let’s not squander this moment. Let’s look forward — and build back better.
I believe we’re at an inflection point.
Are we going to continue with an economy where the overwhelming share of the benefits go to the top?
Or will we choose a new path? One that invests in this nation and creates growth that benefits everyone.
My Republican friends are attacking my plan — saying it’s “big spending.”
I have to laugh when I hear that one.
These are the same folks who passed the Trump tax cuts, almost $2 trillion, a giant giveaway to corporations and the top 1% — and almost none of it was paid for.
For a long time, this economy has worked great for those at the top. While ordinary, hardworking Americans — the people who built this country — have been cut out of the deal.
This is our moment to change that. This is our moment to deal working people back in.
Yes, we face a crisis with climate change. But we also face an unprecedented opportunity.
To create the good-paying, union jobs of the future. To create the industries of the future. To win the future. And to save the planet.
We can do this.
15 Nobel Prize-winning economists agree that my economic plan will grow our economy.
But it’s about more than that — it’s about deciding that we want an economy that deals the middle class in. An economy where the wealthiest don’t get to write the rules. axios.com/biden-economic…
The vaccine requirements under my COVID plan will cover one hundred million workers. Today, I met with businesses that are leading the way. Because vaccine requirements keep businesses open and workers safe.
I’ve set a course for the U.S. to achieve 100% clean electricity by 2035, and to reach net-zero emissions economy-wide by 2050.
We can do this in a way that creates good jobs, lowers costs, and makes us global leaders of entirely new industries.
Let me be clear: The wealthy don’t need another tax cut, the middle class does. The hardworking Americans who get up every day and make this country run.
We’re going to pass a historic middle class tax cut — paid for by making those at the top pay their fair share.
Tune in as I deliver remarks on a national security initiative – joined virtually by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
We have a fundamental choice to make. Are we just going to go back to the way things were before the pandemic, with working people being cut out of the deal — or are we going to build a new economy that gives the middle class a chance?
I know my answer.
Today, another round of payments from our expanded Child Tax Credit is heading to working families across the country.
Be on the lookout for a $250 to $300 payment labeled “CHILDCTC” in your bank account.
Help is here with the American Rescue Plan.
Too many working families are struggling to make ends meet.
President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda and its Child Tax Credit extension will make it easier for families to afford food, child care, health care, and more – all by making sure the wealthiest pay their fair share.
Hoy comienza el mes nacional de la herencia hispana. Este mes es un importante recordatorio de la fuerza que nace de nuestras raíces inmigrantes y de nuestros valores como nación de inmigrantes. La herencia hispana es patrimonio estadounidense.
For millennia, Jewish communities have marked Yom Kippur as an occasion to reflect and pray; fast and seek forgiveness; account for past transgressions, and commit to future change.
Jill and I extend our very best wishes for an easy and meaningful fast to all who observe.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is a reminder of how much strength we draw from our diversity and immigrant roots. This month, we recognize that Hispanic heritage is American heritage and celebrate the boundless contributions the community has made that make our nation stronger.
