Biden unveils reversal of Trump tax cuts for most wealthy

US President Joe Biden wants to reverse his predecessor Donald Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy to pay for a huge middle-class families spending plan, senior administration officials say.

Biden will use his speech to a joint session of Congress to unveil the $1.8 trillion American Families Plan, funded by ending Trump’s tax cuts and closing loopholes used by the most wealthy to escape paying their share, officials say.

“The president will be proposing a set of measures to make sure the wealthiest Americans pay the taxes that they owe, while also ensuring that no one making less than $400,000 a year will see their taxes go up,” one official, who has asked not to be identified, tells reporters.
