During a cabinet meeting Tuesday marking six months in office, President Joe Biden talked about the "overwhelming support" his administration has received from Americans for his infrastructure plan.
"And the American people are overwhelmingly supportive of our plan. That’s support that a lot of our friends on the other team kind of miss. But polling data shows that they strongly support our infrastructure," said Biden. "I think they’re a little tired of infrastructure week for four years in a row.
"I think we’re on the verge of maybe being able to get something really done. Rebuilding roads and bridges, replacing lead water pipes, delivering high-speed internet to every American rural and inner city, and taking on the climate crisis with American jobs," he continued.
Biden goes on to say that Americans may not "know the name" but support the plans that he has laid forth.
"And they want us to build back, to build back better. They don’t know the name necessarily, but they know that they support universal pre-K and two years of community college, paid leave and child care, which is essentially a significant tax cut for working class families," said Biden.
"And allowing medicare to negotiate lower drug costs which will significantly reduce drug prices across the board for people," he continued.
Biden added that American support taxing corporations and the wealthiest Americans their "fair share."
"And they support asking the wealthiest one percent of Americans and corporate America… just begin to pay their fair share, just step up a little bit. The idea that the 50 largest corporations in America pay no taxes - I think people should be able to be millionaires and billionaires if they have the ideas, but lord’s sake.. lets start paying your fair share," said Biden.
