Biden Unveils $1.8 Trillion ‘American Families Plan’
April 28, 2021
The Biden administration proposed this week what would be the most significant expansion of education programs in at least a generation with a $1.8 trillion package focused on families and children. The proposal calls for universal pre-K for 3- and 4- year-olds, two years of tuition-free community college, and would guarantee paid medical and family leave. Costs would be offset with increased taxes on the wealthy and investments. The “American Families Plan” represents the third Biden spending proposal totaling in the trillions. It could face a tough sell on Capitol Hill as lawmakers remain focused on the administration’s infrastructure plan.
