AOC Has Some Issues With Biden's Stimulus Plan

On Thursday, President-elect Joe Biden introduced a $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus plan. Called "The American Rescue Plan," Biden's proposal includes a $1,400 stimulus check for most Americans, an extra $400 in weekly unemployment benefits, an expanded child tax credit, an increase in the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, as well as money for schools, coronavirus testing, and vaccine distribution. In fact, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a strong voice for the liberal wing of the Democratic party, has already highlighted several aspects of Biden's proposal that she'd prefer to see modified.
