Dialy US Times: President Biden is expected to call for the most sweeping revamp of US benefits since the 1960s as the US president delivers his first address to a joint session of Congress.
Speaking on the eve of his 100th day in office, Mr Biden will pitch $4 trillion (£2.9tn) of spending on child care, education and family leave.
He already passed a $2tn Covid-19 aid package.
History will also be made as two women, US Vice-President Kamala Harris and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, sit behind the US president for the first time during a speech to Congress.
Both of them will wear masks at the rostrum during Wednesday night’s primetime address.
Mr Bien’s State of the Union-style remarks will be followed by the traditional rebuttal speech from the opposing party – delivered on this occasion by Senator Tim Scott, a Republican form South Carolina.
Mr Scott, a potential 2024 contender of the US presidency who is African American, is a leading voice in his party on race.
Mr Biden will speak at 21:00 EDT from a US Capitol that is still ringed by security fencing and guarded by hundreds of National Guard troops following the storming of the Capitol building on 6 January by pro-Trump protesters.
Ahead of the president’s speech in the Congress, he will meet congressional staff who were trapped in the building during the riot, a statement from the White House said.
Usually, around 1,600 guests usually attend a president’s address to a joint session of Congress. But this time only about 200 people will get invitations because of coronavirus-prevention protocols.
Buoyed by solid approval ratings, president Joe Biden will look to the tens of millions of Americans that the White House hopes will tune in from home.
