WILMINGTON, Del. — President-elect Joe Biden is calling for quick action as the nation looks to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic.
He laid out his nearly $2 trillion relief plan Thursday night. It includes $1,400 payments to Americans to supplement the $600 payments already doled out. It also extends unemployment benefits for the millions who have lost their jobs during the crisis.
Biden said his plan will “build a bridge to the other side of the pandemic” to make sure the nation comes out stronger and more secure.
