President Biden's American Rescue Plan
President Biden stopped in Columbus yesterday to promote the passage of the $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus package and the help it offers to families, especially those living in poverty.
In his remarks, the president touted the $1,400 stimulus checks for most families and an increase in the child tax credit. Researchers say the legislation could reduce poverty by one-third.
Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we look at two aspects of the new law, lifting children out of poverty, and federal aid for struggling cities and municipalities.
