Why President Biden’s Government Solutions Would Actually Weaken the Infrastructure of American Families

President Biden’s plan will undermine, not help, American families. Under this plan, the federal government takes more of Americans’ incomes and then redistributes the money in the form of benefits that politicians—not families—create, approve, and control. This would leave families with fewer opportunities and less control over their circumstances while failing to address the real problems in child care, education, family leave, and health care. Lawmakers who want to help families should reject the leftist laundry list in the American Families Plan and support family formation and stability. Eliminating marriage penalties in our welfare system, encouraging flexibility in work and child care, and offering more education options and access to better private health plans are good starts.
