Joe Biden rolls out the third part of his plan that takes advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to revolutionize the economy – this time to boost caregivers.
Biden will speak Tuesday afternoon in New Castle, Delaware and spend a $ 775 billion plan to create 3 million new jobs for health care providers, with the aim of making childcare cheaper and keeping older or disabled family members near or closer to home.
Joe Biden has cared for aging parents and he is a single parent. Biden knows how difficult it is to start a family and care for a sick family member, “said a press release from the Biden campaign. “And he knows how difficult it is for millions of Americans who are just trying to make ends meet.”
Joe Biden plans to roll out a plan on Tuesday that aims to produce 3 million additional jobs for caregivers to help U.S. families provide childcare and keep older or disabled family members near or at home
The plan spends the money over a decade and is paid by reversing tax breaks for real estate investors with incomes over $ 400,000, the campaign said.
It also increases compliance for high-income people.
Biden has made his debut in recent weeks in an effort to excite voters, rather than just taking advantage of the anti-Trump.
Last week, he focused on how to rebuild the post-coronavirus economy in a green way, with a $ 2 trillion plan.
The week before, he unveiled a $ 700 billion plan that would prompt the government to buy American-made goods, among other things.
Under the proposal, Biden promises to provide for the estimated 800,000 people who are waiting for home and community services under Medicaid.
He wants to expand alternatives to institutional care for all older Americans while helping veterans by filling tens of thousands of veteran job openings across the country.
He also pledges to train and employ 150,000 new health workers in disadvantaged communities, and 35,000 more to fight the opioid crisis, in addition to creating a 100,000-member public health job corps.
The Biden campaign noted that the coronavirus is forcing schools to shut down and many parents desperately juggling full-time jobs and childcare, but the plan states that “ millions of parents were already struggling before the pandemic to find a place for their child in quality care and educational environment, in which parents – mainly mothers – remain outside the working population. ‘
Biden says he can fix that with a joint federal state pre-kindergarten program, while also offering low-income and middle-class families a tax credit of up to $ 8,000 to help pay for childcare.
He plans to offer pay raisers and young educators pay increases and bonuses to childcare workers who work during non-traditional hours, while extending families’ access to after-school, weekend and summer care.
Biden also plans to increase the number of childcare facilities across the country by offering tax credits and providing federal funding to companies willing to build them up.
