How does Biden’s Budget Prioritizes War Over People’s Needs?



 

President Joe Biden has announced a $5.8 trillion federal budget whose key priorities are out of line with his campaign platform. His budget includes significant increases in military and police spending. In an attempt to center the progressive aspects of his budget, Biden announced in a statement that he was taking steps to overturn his predecessor’s tax cuts on the rich. But there was no significant spending on social issues, economic justice, or combating climate change. Senate Budget Committee Senate Budget Committee Senator Bernie Sanders, head of the Senate Budget Committee said firmly, “We do not need a massive increase in the defense budget.”
