Washington:

President Joe Biden proposed a $6 trillion budget on Friday to fund his ambitious makeover of the economy in 2022 while driving the United States into record debt -- if he can get it past Congress.

Announcing the proposed spending, Biden said the post-pandemic United States "cannot afford to simply return to the way things were before."

"We must seize the moment to reimagine and rebuild a new American economy," he said.
