President Biden’s $4 trillion plan to tax the rich and invest in America - BBC News

President Biden has marked his first 100 days in office by launching radical and ambitious proposals for America, a “once in a generation” investment plan as he called it.
If enacted, it could be transformational. It comes at a huge cost - four trillion dollars. Much of it would be paid for by tax rises for corporations and for the most wealthy.
The American Families Plan aims to cut child poverty and put a cap on child care costs.
It's hoped it will create millions of jobs through a massive programme of investment in infrastructure, broadband and green energy.
However President Biden faces a battle in Congress, especially over raising higher taxes.
Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by north America editor Jon Sopel.

  • The US right now has a high numbers of new job openings, but also a rise in unemployment!? They don’t need more jobs. They need to end stimulus checks and motivate people to get back to work.

  • They say what people want to hear. Soon as the cash piles in, there's gonna be some "middle eastern extremist kills American, we're gonna send in our troops" And that's where the $4 billion tax money will go to, another war and once that oversees nation is exiled, demolished, bombarded, then will come phase 2: bringing democracy to some middle eastern country for the next decade! The faces on the screens change but the script under the microphone remains the same!

  • Finally someone is making an effort in the right direction. Someone like the Amazon boss rakes in billions during the pandemic. His staff at the frontline is heavily underpayed, stripped off rights and for the workers of the subs it's even worse. How can such behaviour is legal and not having some folk send to prison and their weilth confiscated as fraud, theft or unlawful whatsoever... To make the measurements creating a long term effect, experts should look into ways to exchange the llaw from the Carter Era, where they made businesses equal to humans in a court. The tax evasion that stems from this grave mistake is a figure for maths enthusiasts. And to all who'd like to wave the communist call into my direction...Nono, I'm not against a big chunk of the cake for the smarter ones or daring or such...I just think no single human beeing needs to aggravate more then 100 Million. And everything above that is by all means money stolen by the wall street and bank gangsters that developed perfectly after said Carter-law. But, yes, it is a brave but right move. Put money in the bottom twenty...they will spend it on goods much needed and will further increase economic growth. I hope the next one at the Helm back home is capable of similar drastic actions...Too many people are left behind or never even made it to the wagon trail right from the start. Built bridges not fences is the only way to make mends and get the people aboard...

Is the toll system / congestion charge type - thing going ahead or should we put that down to scaremongering? Am going mainly by online sources here on this as I understand it could also be propaganda worrying people about pay-as-you drive and favouring automated vehicles etc?!? Not sure myself. Appreciate your defense/explanation on this anyhow.

  • Selling the fantasy. That what he is doing. He wants to reorganize the US around a stronger federal government modeling it after European states. In europe there are still poor and still rich, but there is less liberty. That is what this will all result in. As the federal government becomes stronger, individual rights decay.
