US President Joe Biden is pushing for a new economic aid package in the face of the pandemic, as the next step after the first $ 1.9 trillion bill that was approved by the Senate in early March, said Jen Psaki, secretary of the press of the White House.
This Sunday, Psaki confirmed that Biden will promote another bill for the recovery of the country from the coronavirus, called “Build Back Better”, and is expected to offer details of this new plan this Wednesday, As reported Fox News.
Biden promotes new economic aid package in the face of the pandemic
The funds from the American Rescue Bread have been distributed since March 11 when Biden signed the document and signed it into law. Now, the Biden Administration prepares for a next ‘battle’. The president will have “more to say” about a new phase of his recovery plan in April, the White House spokeswoman said.
“When the president advocated for the American Rescue Plan, he spoke of it being two stages: rescue and then recovery. What the American people will hear from him this week is part of his plan, the first step in his plan towards recovery that will include an investment in infrastructure, ”Psaki told the outlet.
The second aid package, what will it include?
Although she did not offer all the details, the press official announced that this time President Biden will put on the table issues such as medical care and the number of women who have left their jobs because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“He will have more to say later in April about the second part of his recovery plan, which will include several of the pieces he spoke about: health care, child care, addressing that. It is a crisis at the moment, the number of women who have left the workplace, “he said, adding that they are still working on the development of” the total package. “
Infrastructure in the first place?
Much has been said about a major infrastructure plan that Democrats would be looking forward to. However, Psaki clarified that this recovery package and the infrastructure bill will be “two separate proposals.”
“We will work with the Senate and the House to see how it should move forward,” he said. The president is expected to offer certain details about his new projects, including his infrastructure plan, this Wednesday when he gives his speech in Pittsburgh.
Will Biden’s new budget package include a fourth check?
Without a doubt, it is the question that all citizens are asking: Will a new Biden economic package include a fourth check? The reality is that, so far, there is no evidence that they are planning to include new stimulus checks as part of the second phase of President Biden’s economic plan, according to the NY Journal.
So far, discussions on this new plan have been behind closed doors. What has been leaked to the media is that it does not include any point about a fourth stimulus check. Instead, the funds will go to infrastructure and renewable energy, such as roads, bridges, railways, electric vehicle charging and cell phone networks.
Include ‘everything’ in the package
The initial planning for this new package was for up to $ 3 trillion, but it is not yet clear how the funds would be distributed now that it has been announced that two separate bills will be introduced. Nor what specifically each project will include.
Still, Democrats are anxious about what to include in the bill, and there has even been talk of new drug price measures and new climate policies, Fox said. This could even open a window of hope for who are waiting for a new check.
There is still hope
This second stimulus package from Biden is still under discussion in the US Senate and it could take several weeks before an agreement is reached, as was the case with the recently approved US Rescue Plan. Which means that everything can change after the negotiations of the legislators.
Especially because various legislators are inclined to continue helping citizens through direct payments that improve family finances, such as the $ 1,400 that is currently being distributed. Even the most liberal Democrats advocate making these payments consistent.
In contrast, the republicans
Unfortunately, all these projects will meet with the already dissatisfied Republican resistance because they were left ‘out’ in the approval of the first Biden package and because they consider that the Democratic projects make the public debt of the United States grow by leaps and bounds.
