White Home officers are starting to interpret Biden’s complete plan for the social security web for allies

Posted by Kate Sullivan, CNN

(CNN) – White House officials have begun unfolding the contents of President Joe Biden’s comprehensive plan to expand the social safety net for his allies in and out of Congress as they prepare to pull up on Capitol Hill without Republican support .

A memo received by CNN shows senior Biden officials outlining key provisions of the plan, which is separate from the bipartisan infrastructure deal the president celebrated with senators from both parties last month. This bipartisan deal involves heavy investments in “hard” infrastructure like roads, bridges, railways, pipes and airports.

The memo received from CNN contains the plan to approve the second part of a two-pronged legislative agenda and focuses on what Biden calls “human infrastructure”. This “human infrastructure” proposal involves substantial investments in paid family vacations, education, childcare, health care and clean energy. The memo, the first of its kind outlining the framework of the plan, was sent to members of Congress, leading advocacy groups and think tanks on Friday, according to a known source.

The “human infrastructure” proposal will include guidelines that did not make it into the bipartisan infrastructure framework, as well as the content of Biden’s $ 1.8 trillion American family plan. The president brought his “Generational Investment in Human Infrastructure” sales pitch to Crystal Lake, Illinois earlier this week.

The Friday memo was sent by Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council; Jen Klein, co-chair and executive director of the Gender Policy Council; Gina McCarthy, Biden’s National Climate Advisor; and Susan Rice, the president’s domestic affairs adviser.

The memo outlines Biden’s push to make improved subsidies permanent through the Affordable Care Act, also known as premium tax credits.

The President is also pushing for two years of free community college and universal preschool, 12 weeks of paid family and sick leave, substantial investment in housing, expansion of free school meals, expansion of home health care, investment in vocational training programs, more money for research and development, and expansion of the Teacher preparation programs.

Biden plans to extend the child tax credit, expanded earlier this year through the American Rescue Plan, and make the credit permanently refundable. The increase in child tax credit will give eligible parents a total of $ 3,600 for each child under the age of 6 and $ 3,000 for each child under the age of 18 for 2021.

The plan also focuses on tackling the climate crisis and would provide clean energy tax credits and set a standard for energy efficiency and clean electricity. It would create a civilian climate corps to work on conserving public land and water and promoting environmental justice. These new initiatives and guidelines are designed to help Biden achieve its goal of 100% carbon-free electricity by 2035.

The president’s proposal would also extend the increase in income tax credit, passed under the American Rescue Plan, which was the largest increase in that credit since 2009.

The plan would invest $ 3 billion in the inspection and removal of lead paint from 175,000 residential units and $ 40 billion in improving the quality and energy efficiency of public housing.

The Democrats are planning a process called budget reconciliation to get the bill passed without Republican support from Congress. This will only work if they have all Democratic Senators on board and if the Democrats have enough votes to pass the bill in the House of Representatives.
