7:01 pm
a chance of going across the shut down. it can't be billed back to the same standard. is the weather is not going to get a lot better. we just got to keep from getting the heck of a lot worse. we had to build bag better and stronger. no one should have to hold their breath as a cross, a rundown bridge, or a dangerous intersection in their hometown. when put hardworking americans on the job to bring our infrastructure up to speed, good union jobs, the prevailing wage jobs, you can raise a family on my dad mistake. you have a little breathing room jobs. it can't be outsourced jobs replacing lead water pipes. so families can drink clean water, improving the health of our children and putting plumbers and pipe fitters to work . jobs lane thousands of miles of transmission lines to bill of modern energy, great jobs making a high speed internet affordable and available everywhere in rural and urban
7:02 pm
america. particularly including the 35 percent of rural america that goes around right now. this pandemic is made clear the need for affordable and available high speed internet. the idea, the parent having to put their kids in the car for virtual learning drive and sit in the mcdonalds parking lot. so that child can access the internet when school is taught virtually is not only necessary, just wrong. it's wrong. the said before these plans are fiscally responsible. they are fully paid for. they don't add a single penny to the deficit. they don't raise taxes on any one making less than $400000.00 a year. in fact, they reduce the deficit. here's how. i don't want to punish anyone success. i'm a capitalist. i want everyone to be able to if they want to be a millionaire billionaire, to be able to seek their goal. but all i'm asking is,
7:03 pm
hey, your fair share. pay your fair share. pay your fair share and right now, many more fame virtually nothing. last year, the $55.00 most profitable corporations in america, $55.00 of them, paid is 0. 0 in federal income tax, on about $40000000000.00 in profit. oh, it's very poor, big profits to the shareholders. they should be paying taxes. is that simple? that's why the bill back better framework will have a 15 percent minimum. on the largest corporations, a minimum tax of 50 percent, the top one percent of the wealthiest americans evade is estimated by the experts. a $160000000000.00 in federal taxes. that's wrong. when a change that one of the size that i said in the beginning, under my plans,
7:04 pm
if he earned less than $400000.00, you won't pay a single penny more in federal taxes period. in fact, these bills continue cutting taxes from middle class for child care for health care, so much more and it closes this for much too long. working people, this nation in the middle class of this country had been dealt out of the american deal. is time to deal. i'm back in, i ran for president saying it was time to reduce the co, the burden on the middle class to rebuild the backbone of his nation, working people and a middle class. i couldn't have been any clear from the very moment i announced my candidacy. that's why i wrote these bills in the 1st place. it took them to the people i campaigned on them, and american people spoke this agenda. ja janice in these bills
7:05 pm
is 181000000 americans voted for more people voted than any time in american history. that's a devoted for their voices deserve you. heard not deny a worse ignore is. here's what i noun, we make these investments will be no stopping the american people or america we will own the future. i've long said, it's never been a good bet to bet against the american people. i've said that to foreign leaders as well as everyone here in this country, which means it's always a good bit to bet any american people. just give them half a chance. and that's what we're doing on that to these plans. do the rub, betty, non america, about believing in america about believing in the capacity, the american people to look at the history, the journey, this nation. what becomes crystal clear is this. i said again, given half a chance,
7:06 pm
the american people have never, ever, ever, ever left the country death. so let's get this done. god bless you all and may god protect you. troops now see you in italy and in scala. thank you. oh, that's the u. s. president joe biden, standing alongside him, was the vice president, pamela harris, and they're off after announcing a framework for an agreement on his domestic spending policy package. the u. s. president said that they've reached a historic economic framework on that spending bill that includes historic investment in the country. and he also said that people, it will help reduce the deficit. let's bring an allen fisher for more details on what the president just have to say. allen, for anyone catching up with the news, just talk through what we've heard right now from the president. well essentially he say he has a framework for his build back better agenda, which essentially will invest billions of dollars in the us infrastructure,
7:07 pm
billions of dollars in combat, climate change and also billions in dollars in social programs. they'll do things like provide better health care for the elderly, better preschool, for young children ages and 3 and 4. it will expand the child tax credit for another couple of years so that families who have children under the age of 18 will get at least $250.00 from the government. he's been talking about this for months that have been negotiations for months and we're not talking about negotiations between the democrats and republicans. this is between democrats and democrats and various wings of the democratic party. certainly the progressives is the no one would like to see a lot more in the bill, such as paid family leave. that isn't going to happen. they would like to see a lot more covered by medicaid. that isn't going to happen. so they've got some things that they did want, though, at the price tag has come down from 3.5 trillion to 1.7 trillion, still
7:08 pm
a lot of money and still a lot of things that you can do with it. joe biden has been on the hell he's been talking to members of the house are getting them to get behind this because it's got to get through the house 1st of all. and then they think they have enough force to get through the senate that has where most of the negotiations have been to democratic senators, who have been holding out for things that they want to see and things they want removed. sorry about the noise that the helicopter just landing to take joe biden off to the airport, to fly to rome for his meeting with the pool. so a lot of the things he's talked about before, he know believes that is the framework of a deal. the difficulty, of course, is making sure that that happens, that bringing all sites together, making sure there are no last minute defections and deliver him the political will when you wanted a delay the when you want it before he heads off to rule. i'm the g set. okay. alan will let you go for now. thank you so much. alan fisher reporting from the white
7:09 pm
house, let's say, continue the conversation with with jason nichols. he's a democratic strategist and joining us by skype from ellicott city in maryland over in the us. thanks for your time. and you are listening to the president, just gimme your initial reaction to what you just heard. or are you pleased with what joe biden had to say? i am. i'm pleased with with joe biden, and to say, i just wished he had said it earlier, because i think that there are many americans who didn't understand what was in build back better. and i don't think he sold it enough to the american people, i think had he gone out there and said the things that many americans support like expanding medicare to cover vision and dental and hearing, you know, 84 percent of americans support that 67 percent support universal, pre k, but there were many americans who did not understand of that bill back better had these things in it. what they heard was the republican talking point of the price
7:10 pm
tag, which by the way, was $3.00 trillion dollars. it's down down to $1.00 as alan pointed out, but that's over 10 years. so that's not immediately $1.00 trillion dollars. an, as the president pointed out to day, it can be paid for if billionaires pay their fair share, if corporations pay their fair share. so i just wish you had said these things earlier and articulated it earlier to the american people. what about some of the issues that had to be compromised on, and in fact, this is something that joe biden said just a few moments ago. he said no one got everything that they wanted, but it was a compromise. well that's why i think he was correct and that's why the american people selected him over somebody like bernie sanders. i think they thought of him as someone who was going to bring people together, bring sides together and be willing to bend in order to get an overall wind for the
7:11 pm
american people. and i think that's what it looks like happened here in negotiating with senator cinema and sen mansion. so that's what he was selected for and the things that were taken out are very important. but i think the message to democrats should be that if you want these things, you have to go out and vote and get democrats elected if they have a bigger majority in all of these houses, whether it's the senate or the house, or the senate. and now, so i should say i, you will be able to get more of what you want and there are plenty of house and senate seats open. well, all of the house it's just about are open, but the senate has places like pennsylvania and north carolina. and ohio that are winnable seats. so democrats have to go out and vote and we can get things like paid family leave, which by the way, is very popular with the american people with independence, with democrats,
7:12 pm
a 73 percent of americans, according to some polls support paid family leave. so this is something that was had that had to be taken out in order to make a deal, but i don't think it's gone forever. and i think if a, if democrats go out and vote, they can make this happen. okay, and jason eckels, thanks so much for sticking around. we appreciate your time. thank you. thank you. now, still a heads on al jazeera, former argentinean president. my, with your micro faces trial for a submarine, sing king that killed 44 people. were in the car, pacey, mountains were illegal logging as destroying the forest at some consider the lungs of europe. ah, ah, look forward to burly to scully's, the with sponsored boy cattle. it weighs hello. we got some pleasant sunshine

7:17 pm
response, this isn't the 1st time the fishing rights issue has fled up in may french trawlers blockaded the main port in jersey. the british and french deployed a naval presence during the protests. this time, france seems unwilling to back down on demands. if i get stuck on that, it is not war. it's a fight. the french fishermen have some riots. an agreement has been signed. we must have this agreement implemented. we have fishing, right? we must defend them and we will defend france is also working on a 2nd round of sanctions if they needed. and that could mean a reduction of electricity supplies to the u. k. josie is 95 percent dependent on french power. andrew simmons al jazeera of the un security council has issued its 1st statement expressing serious concern about the military takeover and sir dunn,
