President Biden To Buck Tradition And Unveil Budget In Pennsylvania
March 6, 2023 3:58PM PST
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has decided to set aside the usual big White House budget unveiling to showcase his new fiscal year plans this week in Pennsylvania.
Not coincidentally, that’s a must-win state in the 2024 election.
His trip to Philadelphia on Thursday is a sign that the president’s budget proposal will be a form of political messaging, not just an outline of the government’s finances.
President Biden hinted in a Monday speech that tax increases on the wealthy will be at the core of his budget plan, saying he will be proposing a tax that targets billionaires.
