Build Back Better

The White House Briefing Room 

This is the moment to reimagine and rebuild a new economy. The American Jobs  Plan is an investment in America that will create millions of good jobs, rebuild our country’s infrastructure, and position the United States to out-compete China. The plan prioritizes addressing persistent racial injustice and invests in rural communities and communities impacted by the transition to clean energy. The American Jobs Plan will invest in America in a way we have not invested since we built the interstate highways and won the Space Race. 

Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan is widely popular 60% of US voters said they support the White House’s American Jobs Plan, including 84% of Democrats, 51% of independents and 35% of Republicans.  —Morning Consult / Politico April 2-4 2021

Corporations will do their fair share. 

Senator Ron Wyden, chair of the Senate Finance  committee, along with colleagues progressive Sen Sherrod Brown and centrist Mark Warner are  putting together the pay-for of this landmark jobs  plan. Built to attract widespread Senate support,  the plan will tax offshore income more aggressively  and offer new targeted benefits for companies that  invest in research and production here at home. 

We’re asking American Corporations to pay their  fair share. President Joe Biden reminds us, “You have 51 or 52 corporations of the Fortune 500  that haven’t paid a single penny in taxes for three  years,” he said. “Come on, man. Let’s get real.” ations.html
