Yesterday, President-elect Joe Biden announced his  $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package called the “American Rescue Plan.”

Here’s what in it:

It dedicates $400 billion to combat the virus, direct payments of $1,400 to most Americans (adding to the $600 that’s already been approved), and $440 billion to help communities and businesses get by amid the pandemic.

There’s also an expansion of unemployment benefits and tax credits for families with children, plus a plan to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Now Biden just needs to get it past the Republicans who have balked at the sticker price.
