A new survey says that more than two-thirds of Americans support Joe Biden’s $2.2 trillion infrastructure spending plan – and his proposal to tax corporations to pay for it.
The survey found that 68% of Americans support Biden’s $2.2 trillion infrastructure and jobs proposal – a plan that defines “infrastructure far beyond roads and bridges, adding in things like eliminating lead water pipes, help for caregivers and money for community colleges and child care. Less than a third – 29% – of the public opposes the idea.
Biden’s yet-to-be-revealed “American Families Plan” is expected to cost about $1.8 trillion and addresses such issues as national child care, paid family leave and tuition-free community college. That plan, expected to be rolled out ahead of the president’s first joint speech to Congress Wednesday night, is backed by 64% of adults, with 34% opposing it, Monmouth pollsters found.
