Joe Biden: “I will not add to the tax burden of the middle class of this country”

President Joe Biden, who addressed his first joint session of Congress as a President on Wednesday, tweeted a video clip from the meet on Thursday, which says,” I will not add to the tax burden of the middle class of this country. They’re already paying enough. What I’ve proposed is fair, and it’s fiscally responsible.”

Biden’s tweet comes after he highlighted his American Families Plan during the session on Wednesday, which largely talks about raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Through this plan, Biden wants to fund education, child care, paid leave, and other reforms by gathering more tax revenue from Americans whose income is more than $400,000 a year.

During the session, Biden emphasized that people earning less than $400,000 wouldn’t pay more in taxes; he added that it was time for companies and the wealthiest Americans to “pay their fair share.”

Biden’s $400,000 income target has been a subject of various debates as details of his tax plan emerge.
