Biden Budget

President Joe Biden speaks about his 2024 proposed budget at the Finishing Trades Institute, on March 9 in Philadelphia. Biden’s federal budget is a statement of his values. It’s a governing philosophy that believes the wealthy and large corporations should pay more taxes to help stem deficits and lift Americans toward middle class stability.

The Wall Street Journal published this editorial on March 9. It was distributed by the Associated Press:

The White House is touting President Biden’s U.S. military budget for fiscal 2024 as a record, and Mr. Biden is betting busy Americans won’t look past the headlines. The truth is that he’s asking for a real defense cut, even as the U.S. is waking up late to a world of new threats.
