Biden says his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan will create 19 million jobs

President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure package would put pipefitters, construction workers, truck drivers and others to work, and most of the jobs it would create wouldn’t require a college degree, according to a new Georgetown University report.

The American Jobs Plan, which Biden says is the “largest American jobs investment since World War II,” calls for repairing roads, bridges and public transit, as well as installing more than 500,000 electric-vehicle charging ports across the U.S.

If signed into law, the infrastructure plan would lead to increased demand for urban planners and electricians, among others, according to Biden’s remarks when he unveiled the proposal and a White House “fact sheet.”

On Friday, Biden said, “If we pass this plan, the economy will create 19 million jobs.”

1. Under the former guy, no claim was too grandiose, too preposterous

The media faithfully and uncritically reported everything that fell out of his piehole. President Biden makes this announcement of 19 million jobs, let's watch the media reaction.

4. Our infrastructure needs a lot more work and $2.3 trillion is not enough.

It is a start, but it won't do all that needs to be done in the next 8-10 years.
