Biden Unveils $2.25 Trillion Infrastructure Plan In Pittsburgh – Biden and his team are in Pittsburgh – the city where he held his first campaign rally nearly 2 years ago – where he will be unveiling his “American Jobs Plan”, the first part of his sweeping “Build Back Better” initiative.

Examples of provisions in the bill (according to details that have been leaked to the press) include $620 billion for transportation and $650 billion for initiatives such as cleaner water and high-speed broadband.
Biden’s plan would also allocate $580 billion to American manufacturing — which would include $180 billion for the biggest non-defense research and development program on record and $400 billion toward care for the elderly and disabled. WSJ highlighted the fact that the Biden plan will also include some $50 billion to build out semiconductor infrastructure (something Intel, a private company, is already working on by building new production facilities in Arizona). – READ MORE
