Joe Biden has more plans for fighting coronavirus, his press secretary revealed Sunday – just weeks after the US $ 1.9 trillion bailout was signed.
“He will have more to say about the second part of his recovery plan later in April, which will include some of the pieces you talked about – health care, childcare, and talk about that,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki. Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.
“It’s a crisis now,” she continued, “the number of women who have left the workplace.”
She didn’t reveal how expensive this next COVID-19 incentive bill could be, saying, “The total package, we’re still working.”
President Joe Biden ‘has more to say’ about coroan virus stimulus and will unveil another plan for aid in April
White House press secretary Jen Psaki told Fox News on Sunday, “ He will have more to say on the second part of his recovery plan later in April, which will include … health care, childcare, ”
Psaki said this next coronavirus relief is unrelated to the massive infrastructure bill Biden plans to introduce on Wednesday on his trip to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The sweeping legislation could cost between $ 2 and $ 4 trillion, according to estimates.
In addition to addressing infrastructure, the package is also expected to address social and economic welfare issues, such as free community college and universal childcare.
“When the president advocated the US bailout, he said these are two stages: rescue and recovery,” Psaki told Fox.
“What the American people are hearing from him this week is part of his plan, the first step in his plan towards recovery, including an investment in infrastructure,” she continued in response to the forthcoming rollout.
Proposed by senior Democrats, the plan could amount to more than $ 3 trillion in new spending, and will likely serve as the foundation for Biden’s Build Back Better jobs and infrastructure program.
The national debt currently stands at more than $ 28 trillion and is growing rapidly.
Democrats are trying to fit into this infrastructure package as much as possible, including new drug pricing and climate policy measures.
However, Centrist Democrat Joe Manchin has said he will try to block the bill if there is no cooperation of any kind with the Republicans.
With a 50-50 divided Senate, the Democratic legislature could throw off the party’s plans.
When it comes to the next coronavirus fight, Psaki says the government is working with Congress on more specific issues – read Congressional Democrats.
“We will work with the Senate and the House to see how things go forward,” she said.
The $ 1.9 trillion package was pushed through with no input from the Republicans much to Manchin anger.
