Biden's Federal Infrastructure Plan Could 'Far Exceed The New Deal'
The American Jobs Plan would be historic should it pass through Congress.
The ambitious proposal would not only cover roads, bridges, and traditional pillars of infrastructure, but also human capital. One component of the bill addresses affordable housing, pledging the construction of 2 million homes in addition to public school upgrades and training a clean-energy workforce. "This will far exceed the New Deal, it will far exceed the great society of LBJ," U.S. Representative Emanuel Cleaver said.
