“Amtrak Joe” Biden makes push for infrastructure spending in Philadelphia

U.S. President Joe Biden returned on Friday to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, one of the cities that helped win him the White House as he works to gain popular support for $4 trillion in proposed programs to shore up the U.S. economy.

Biden took part in an event marking the 50th anniversary of Amtrak, the U.S. passenger rail service, as he called for expanding rail use in the United States.

The President is asking Congress for $80 billion in spending to improve train service, one of a wide set of initiatives included in multitrillion-dollar infrastructure, climate, childcare and other proposals Biden is trying to maneuver through a sharply divided Congress.

The spending would be paid for with higher taxes on the wealthy and corporations.

Republicans and even some Democratic lawmakers have balked at the price tag.

Biden has long been associated with Amtrak because of his decades commuting daily on the 90-minute train ride between Washington and his home in Wilmington, Delaware, when he was a U.S. senator.
