The White House today announced a framework for its “Build Back Better” plan. We have no reason to believe much of it is true.
Initially, progressives wanted $6 trillion. Biden said he wanted $3.5 trillion. Today’s framework is for $1.75 trillion — maybe. (There’s another $100 billion in immigration-related spending that isn’t included in that total.) The framework also has $1.995 trillion in offsets. That means, according to the framework, this plan would reduce the national debt by $245 billion over the next ten years.
