BREAKING: AMAZON CEO SUPPORTS AMERICAN JOBS PLAN, CORPORATE TAX INCREASE
Today, Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos released a statement announcing Amazon’s support for President Biden’s American Jobs Plan, a $2.25 trillion investment in infrastructure, manufacturing, clean energy, and care.
The statement reads:
“We support the Biden Administration’s focus on making bold investments in American infrastructure. Both Democrats and Republicans have supported infrastructure in the past, and it’s the right time to work together to make this happen. We recognize this investment will require concessions from all sides—both on the specifics of what’s included as well as how it gets paid for (we’re supportive of a rise in the corporate tax rate). We look forward to Congress and the Administration coming together to find the right, balanced solution that maintains or enhances U.S. competitiveness.”
Bezos joins 73% of voters — and 57% of Republicans — who support the plan, according to a new poll from Data for Progress/Invest in America.
