Biden Vows to Restore American Dream Through $550 Billion in Economic Stimulus Packages
President Joe Biden has promised to restore the American Dream through his economic policy, Bidenomics, which he described as a break from decades of Republican economic thinking that has benefited the rich.
Biden highlighted investments in infrastructure and high-tech manufacturing, and criticized tax cuts for the wealthy that he said had failed to benefit ordinary people.
The US has the highest economic growth rate among leading economies, according to Biden.
Trump responded by claiming that Biden and the Radical Democrat Congress had created the highest inflation in a decade and had brought the worst economic decline since the Great Depression.
The article discusses the spending bills passed by Congress during Biden's first two years in power, which are focused on green energy technology, semiconductors, and infrastructure revamping, totaling over $550 billion.
Lael Brainard, director of the National Economic Council, says that this spending is a catalyst for private sector spending in manufacturing and construction, contrasting with the Reagan-era trickle-down theory that led to the hollowing out of industrial cities.
Brainard also compared the funding for broadband internet expansion to Franklin Roosevelt's electrification program.
Olivia Dalton, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary, believes that as Americans start to see the funds being put into action, they will buy into the Bidenomics pitch.
Biden himself expressed confidence in his administration's economic policies, saying he is "looking forward" to the re-election battle and that they have a story to tell about transforming the country.
