WATCH: President Biden visits Colorado, talking about ‘Build Back Better’ plan
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - President Joe Biden is visiting Denver Tuesday to talk about his tax and spending proposal, called the “Build Back Better” plan.
You can watch live coverage of his visit from the 11 Breaking News Center at the top of this article. The president arrived at Denver International Airport just after 1 p.m. on Tuesday.
The $3.5 trillion legislation includes expansions to public health programs like Medicaid, child care, and elder care. The plan also proposes universal preschool, free community college, and a new path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. Congress has yet to decide whether the plan would become law.
In a tweet Sunday, Biden explained the money would come from increasing taxes on super wealthy Americans and big corporations.
While in the west, Biden also stopped in Idaho and California. He addressed issues brought on by the Caldor Fire burning near Lake Tahoe. He is also expected to campaign with California Gov. Gavin Newsom ahead of Tuesday’s recall election.
