          Biden’s Promise: $2 Trillion Infrastructure Plan

The expected promise of Biden's election was passed by both parties for a $2 trillion infrastructure plan. The Biden administration will oversee the greatest modernization of US roads, railroads, and other transportation infrastructure among the generations that have promised to create jobs and make the United States more competitive. Among those are-

  • $180 billion for research and development
  • $115 billion for roads and bridges
  • $85 billion for public transit
  • $80 billion for Amtrak and freight rail
  • $42 billion for ports and airports
  • $100 billion for broadband
  • $111 billion for water infrastructure —

This aspect includes $45 billion to prevent children from being forced to drink water from lead pipes. This crisis recently occurred in Flint, Michigan. Where the state declared a state of emergency after thousands of victims fell ill from lead poisoning. Symptoms of long-term lead exposure include anemia, cerebral edema, or behavioral problems such as anxiety and ADHD. This can slow the child's development and cause behavioral and other problems.

Planned spending covers a wide range of physical infrastructure projects such as transportation, broadband, power grids, and housing. Efforts to start advanced manufacturing. It also supports unions and home care providers for the elderly and disabled Americans, while raising funds to train millions of workers and wages for those who provide their care. With this funding budget, authorities have set goals ​​to fill the racial gap in the economy. These efforts will also focus on investments that protect against forest fires, rising seas, and hurricanes that occur in areas of low-income residents and people of color.
