Watch live as Biden speaks on lowering cost of prescription drugs

US President Joe Biden delivers remarks on how his Build Back Better Act will lower the costs of prescription drugs for millions of Americans.

The bill will also provide initiatives meant to benefit American families, including a new universal pre-kindergarten program, a childcare tax credit, increased funding for senior citizens’ home care, and a one-year expansion of the child tax credit.

The $1.75trn legislation would represent the largest expansion of the social safety net since President Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” agenda was enacted in the 1960s.
