The Build Back Better Framework
PRESIDENT BIDEN’S PLAN TO REBUILD THE MIDDLE CLASS
President Joe Biden believes that there’s no greater economic engine in the world than the hard work and ingenuity of the American people. But for too long, the economy has worked great for those at the top, while working families get squeezed. President Biden promised to rebuild the backbone of the country – the middle class – so that this time everyone comes along. The Build Back Better Framework does just that.
This framework will set the United States on course to meet its climate goals, create millions of good-paying jobs, enable more Americans to join and remain in the labor force, and grow our economy from the bottom up and the middle out.
Strengthens the middle class through a historic investment in equity, safety, and fairness.
The most transformative investment in children and caregiving in generations:
Offers universal and free preschool for all 3- and 4-year-olds, the largest expansion of universal and free education since states and communities across the country established public high school 100 years ago.
Makes the largest investment in child care in the nation’s history, saving most American families more than half of their spending on child care.
Delivers affordable, high-quality care for older Americans and people with disabilities in their homes, while supporting the workers who provide this care.
Provides 39 million households up to $3,600 (or $300 per month) in tax cuts per child by extending the American Rescue Plan’s expanded Child Tax Credit.
