Biden to propose $2 trillion of extra spending: report

President-elect Joe Biden will propose a $2 trillion increase in fiscal spending to help the U.S. economy get through the coronavirus pandemic, according to a published report.

CNN reported that Biden, who is due to speak in Wilmington, Del., on Thursday, will outline a proposal that will include more direct payments to American families and significant state and local funding. CNN’s report sent the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury

higher.

The U.S. lost 140,000 jobs in December, with the unemployment rate staying at 6.7%, according to the Labor Department.

Biden’s proposal has a long way from becoming law, as the Democrats can’t afford to lose a single vote in the U.S. Senate. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin has already expressed opposition to increasing stimulus checks to a total of $2,000 from the $600 that’s already been passed, though Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican, said he’s in favor of such a move.
