Will another stimulus check be part of the president’s infrastructure plan?
President Joe Biden is currently hard at work campaigning for the passage of an infrastructure plan. The president is hoping to spend an estimated $4 trillion across two different infrastructure packages, which are being referred to as the Build Back Better package.
The first part of the package, which carries a price tag of $2 trillion, would be paid for by corporate tax increases. It would authorize improvements to bridges and roadways, money for homecare services, an investment in American manufacturing, and more.
Some lawmakers, however, are pressuring the president to include another round of coronavirus relief among the provisions of the infrastructure bill. This would include a fourth stimulus check for eligible families, following the $1,400 third payment that is currently being distributed into bank accounts across America.
