Ayanna Pressley and Cory Booker Democratic senators Ayanna Pressley and Cory Booker According to the proposal, the federal government would give a $1,000 savings account to every newborn in the United States.
The senator believed that this scheme would help reduce inequality and provide a basis for financial security. They argue that the current economic structure of the United States does not promote equal opportunity or provide financial protection to infants.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made economic inequality worse, and many families in the United States struggle to make ends meet on a daily basis. The policy is also compared to other recent government programs that help families, such as the child tax credit.
People and a number of organizations have already welcomed the policy with open arms, despite the fact that it has yet to be officially introduced in Congress. Even though some are also concerned about the cost of the program and its potential impact on inflation.
