President Biden's spending bill is good for America, asserts Julie Norman of USAPP. This proposal would upgrade key infrastructure such as roads, bridges, airports and internet broadband. The country is in dire need of such improvements, which Americans appear to understand — over 70% of them support the bill. 20,000 miles of roads and 10,000 miles of bridges need repairing. The US can't delay these needed improvements any longer. It also needs to stay ahead of China, which has vastly outspent it in terms of infrastructure in the past few years. Republicans and Democrats should come together to pass this bill and bring the country forward.
Joe Biden's spending plan is bad news, argues Charles Cooke of National Review. American debt is currently larger than at any point since WWII, bigger than our whole economy. Even without this spending bill, the government is going to spend $3 trillion more than it earns in 2021. Increasing this debt and spending more money we don't have is not the way forward. Not a single Republican has agreed with Biden's plan, therefore imposing it on the whole country would be incredibly divisive. This spending bill, the biggest in America's history, would leave the country less prepared for future crises and saddle new generations with an immense mountain of debt.
