Fifty-eight percent of voters surveyed say they support the package, according to a new Morning Consult poll released this week. Among party lines, 86 percent of Democrats who responded say they back the plan, compared with 54 percent of independents and just 25 percent of Republicans.
"To win that competition for the future, in my view, we also need to make a once-in-a-generation investment in our families and our children," Biden said of the plan during his state of the union address last week. "That’s why I introduced the American Families Plan tonight, which addresses four of the biggest challenges facing American families and, in turn, America.'
Those challenges, Biden said, are better education, access to quality, affordable child care, an upgrade in paid medical leave for working parents and a tax credit for working families.
"In addition to my families' plan, I’m going to work with Congress to address this year other critical priorities for American families," Biden said. "The Affordable Care Act has been a lifeline for millions of Americans, protecting people with pre-existing conditions, protecting women’s health."
