President Biden is pushing the boundaries of how most Americans think of infrastructure.
In a speech on Wednesday, he laid out his vision for revitalizing the nation’s infrastructure in broad, sweeping terms: evoking racial equality, climate change and support for the middle class.
His multitrillion-dollar plan aims not only to repair roads and bridges, but also to bolster the nation’s competitiveness in things like 5G, semiconductors and human infrastructure.
Today, we take a detailed look at what his plans entail and the congressional path he will have to navigate to get it passed.
Guest: Jim Tankersley, a White House correspondent for The New York Times.
