Biden lay out his budget plan, challenges GOP to follow suit
President Joe Biden chose a union training center in Philadelphia to lay out his new 10-year budget proposal and challenge congressional Republicans to release their own spending blueprint. Biden said the GOP follow suit and then the two sides could "sit down and see where we disagree.” He expressed doubt that Republicans could make their numbers match their calls for a balanced budget. And he suggested that any efforts to do so could come at the expense of middle-class families. In addition to deficit reduction, Biden’s budget proposal largely revolves around the idea of taxing the wealthy to help fund programs for the middle class, older adults and families. The GOP already is rejecting the plan.
