Day 70: Biden’s Infrastructure Plan Is Only 37% Infrastructure, Even POLITICO Slams “Not Accurate” Claims

On Day 70, Biden’s “infrastructure” plan was unveiled—and it contained so much more than infrastructure. Even POLITICO – not exactly hostile to Biden – has rated his claims about the plan “not accurate.”

Biden’s Plan To “Rebuild the Backbone of America.”

Last Wednesday, Biden unveiled his massive $2 trillion infrastructure proposal, titled the “American Jobs Plan,” which proposes to:

  • Replace 10 of “the most economically significant” bridges;
  • Repair 10,000 bridges;
  • Build new railways and transit lines;
  • Build 500,000 charging stations nationwide;
  • Procure materials from minority-owned businesses;
  • Replace 100 percent of lead pipes and service lines;
  • Build infrastructure for 100 percent high-speed broadband coverage;
  • Hike corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent;
  • Enact a 15 percent minimum tax on large corporations’ book income;
  • Prioritize “addressing long-standing and persistent racial injustice”;
  • Raise wages and benefits for home caregiving workers;
  • “Prepare students to be productive workers”;
  • Eliminate the use of paper plates in public schools;
  • Expand access to long-term care services under Medicaid;
  • Establish the United States as a leader in climate science;
  • Eliminate racial and gender inequities in R&D, science, technology, engineering, and math;
  • Support violence prevention programs to the tune of $5 billion;
  • “Build social infrastructure to support innovation and productivity across the country”.

But even according to the globalist World Economic Forum, this plan goes well beyond “infrastructure,” with POLITICO reporting on Wednesday April 7th that just 37 percent of Biden’s plan – $821bn – can be considered such.
