While most have heard of President Biden’s Build Back Better plan by name, there’s likely a higher percentage who know more about the price tag – $3.5. Trillion over 10 years, albeit it’s reported it will now be between 1.5 and 2.2 trillion. The amount rings a bell but the details of the plan are far less familiar. It was recently revealed a mere 10% of Americans know a lot of specifics of what’s in it, as a majority either don’t know specifics or anything at all. The BBB plan includes lower child care costs, paid family leave, universal pre-k and lower prescription drug prices, to name a few. But how does Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda impact the Black community?
Deputy Secretary Don Graves, U.S. Department of Commerce answers those questions.
