Biden Takes To The Road To Push His COVID-19 Relief Plan
"President biden is on the road this week. He wants congress to pass his one point nine trillion dollar covert relief package. And so he's making the case for it directly to american citizens last night. He was in wisconsin for a town hall produced by cnn. and host. anderson. Cooper asked the question. When is every american. Who wants it going to be able to get vaccine by the end of july this year. Npr national political correspondent. Mara liasson is good morning mar. Good morning joe. Biden took a lot of questions about vaccines and also a lot of questions about when schools are going to reopen. How yes school. Openings have become a really controversial issue and a potential vulnerability for the white house. The republicans have been saying that biden is not being aggressive enough on something that too. Many americans is the most important signal of getting back to normal. In addition to the many reasons why it's important for kids and parents to get schools open and one of the reasons that this could be potentially damaging for the white house is that the president's press secretary had set a remarkably low bar of what biden meant by school opening. She said that he wants half of them. Having in person instruction one day per week by the end of his first one hundred days last night biden said that was a mistake in communications. He wants to see k. Through eight classes back five days a week. Here's what he said. We'll be close to that. At the end of the first hundred days you'd have a significant percentage them being able to be opened my rent. My guess is they're going to probably be pushing to open all for all summer to continue like it's different semester days a week or a. I think many of them have five days week. The goal we five days a week. So that's a more ambitious goal. But as biden pointed out is a state and locally controlled thing can set goals put out guidelines. But it's not up to him. Speaking of ambitious he still wants one point nine trillion dollars. There are critics of his plan. There are economists. also who say that's just too much money it seems like biden is saying. Let me make the case to the people who are suffering and explain why we need one point nine trillion. Yes and he did that last night. He pointed out the polls show that many republicans even trump voters are support. The package the package has very very high approval ratings and even though it's not popular with republican members of congress biden also defended the price tag saying. There's a consensus among economists. About spending more rather than less. And you know both biden's treasury secretary janet yellen and the fed chair. Jerome powell have both said that a bigger package is better and if it does spark inflation they can handle that. What's unclear is if the package will get any republican support in congress. Despite those bipartisan talks. You know senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell told the wall street journal that he thinks the first step to unify republicans and of course.
