How to pay for it
Republicans remain strongly opposed to Biden’s plan to raise corporate taxes — including raising the rate to 28% from the 21% level set in 2017 — to pay for the new spending. Instead, the GOP group has proposed reallocating funds already approved by Congress and charging fees for using certain kinds of transportation, like electric vehicles.
Funding for roads and bridges
A $400 billion boost to caregiving
Biden wants to provide $400 billion to bolster caregiving for aging Americans and those with disabilities so that more of them could receive care at home. The investment would also improve the wages of home health workers. It made up the second largest piece of his original infrastructure proposal and was something he had called for on the campaign trail.
The Republican proposal left this investment out.
$100 billion for workforce training
The GOP plan didn’t include funding for workforce development and training, while Biden’s proposal calls for a $100 billion investment in this area. The money would be used to create apprenticeships and provide training for people who have lost their jobs and want to gain new skills in high-demand sectors like clean energy, manufacturing and caregiving.
$18 billion to upgrade veterans’ hospitals
Biden’s plan would provide $18 billion to modernize the Veterans Affairs hospitals, which are on average 47 years older than a private-sector hospital, according to the White House. The GOP plan did not include this funding.
$5 billion for environmental remediation
This money was also excluded from the Republican framework. The White House called for a $5 billion investment in the remediation and redevelopment of former industrial and energy sites that now sit idle and are sources of blight and pollution.
