WASHINGTON, DC — Recently, Vice President Joe Biden has released two big plans to tackle job and economic recovery along with infrastructure and clean energy. The DC Democratic Party is grateful and thrilled that our prospective Democratic presidential nominee is focused on solutions to our biggest problems.
The first plan is entitled “Build Back Better: Joe Biden’s Jobs and Economic Recovery Plan for Working Families,” and includes solutions to create millions of good-paying jobs, provide aid to state, local, and tribal governments to prevent layoffs, extend COVID crisis unemployment insurance to help those who are out of work, and provide a comeback package for Main Street businesses and entrepreneurs.
The second plan is entitled “The Biden Plan to Secure Environmental Justice and Equitable Economic Opportunity in a Clean Energy Future,” which outlines the necessity to integrate climate justice into infrastructure rebuilding. The plan includes using an inclusive and empowering All-of-Government approach; making decisions that are driven by data and science; targeting resources in a way that is consistent with prioritization of environmental and climate justice; and assessing and addressing risks to communities from the next public health emergency.
DC Democratic Party Chairman Charles Wilson gave the following statement in response to Biden’s new plans:
“We already knew Joe Biden was the right candidate to take on Trump, and his newly-released plans of action to tackle economic recovery, sustainable infrastructure, and a clean energy future prove that he is the right candidate for our whole country. He understands that economic recovery and environmental justice are two of the most pressing issues our nation and our world faces today, and has created some of the most detailed and well-thought-out plans we’ve ever seen. The DC Democratic Party is looking forward to continuing to work with the Biden campaign to ensure his victory in November.”
