President Joe Biden is seeking reelection with a simple pitch to voters: let him "finish the job."

But what exactly does that mean? While Biden has not formally released his plans for his campaign, his ambitions and goals have been made clear throughout his first term as president.

Biden's agenda includes a focus on child care, community college, prescription drugs, civil rights, and gun control. However, achieving these goals will require cooperation from Congress, and many of them have already faced opposition on Capitol Hill.

Despite these challenges, Biden's deputy chief of staff, Bruce Reed, expressed confidence that they would be able to accomplish as much as possible in the next year and continue working on the rest afterward. The Biden campaign believes that his agenda will stack up well against Republicans in the 2024 election, framing it as a choice between fighting for the middle class or serving the interests of the wealthy.

One key difference between Biden and former President Donald Trump is their approach to defending American democracy. While Biden has made it a cornerstone of his administration, Trump attempted to overturn his election loss in 2020. The outcome of the 2024 campaign could have significant implications for the future of the country's institutions.

Biden's plans are costly, and he aims to avoid increasing the deficit. To fund his agenda, he is looking to raise taxes on the wealthy. He has already implemented a 15% minimum tax on companies with annual income exceeding $1 billion. Biden has proposed raising the top tax rate to 39.6%, the corporate tax rate to 28%, and the stock buyback tax to 4%. He also wants to introduce a minimum tax of 25% on the wealthiest Americans, including unrealized capital gains. However, these tax increases face opposition from Republicans.

Biden's original signature plan, known as Build Back Better, aimed to significantly expand the role of the federal government in Americans' lives. However, it was scaled back due to resistance from Senator Joe Manchin, a key vote in the Senate. The resulting Inflation Reduction Act includes financial incentives for clean energy and limits on prescription drug costs, among other provisions. Biden hopes to revive the ideas that were left out, such as making two years of community college tuition-free, offering universal preschool, and limiting the cost of child care for most families.

Another area where Biden seeks to make progress is prescription drugs. He wants to cap the monthly cost of insulin at $35 for all patients, not just Medicare recipients. Additionally, Biden has established a new office dedicated to preventing gun violence and signed legislation to help keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and other dangerous individuals. However, his goal of banning assault weapons remains out of reach due to Republican opposition.

Biden's administration has also faced challenges in addressing issues of racism in policing and protecting voting rights. Bipartisan negotiations on Capitol Hill failed to reach a deal on police reform, and Democratic legislation to protect voting rights stalled due to Senate filibuster rules. Biden has issued executive orders on these issues, but they have limited impact on local law enforcement and voter access.

The Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which guaranteed nationwide access to abortion, has also posed a challenge for Biden. While it has become a potential campaign issue for Democrats, legislation codifying the right to abortion has not advanced in Congress. Biden has stated that he will push for such legislation if his party gains more seats.

Biden's first-day proposal for overhauling the country's immigration system did not gain traction in Congress. However, he aims to address the issue in a second term, particularly as migrants continue to cross the U.S.-Mexico border and the country seeks to meet its economic goals.

On the international front, Biden is facing conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East. He wants to provide military support to Ukraine and Israel, viewing it as vital to U.S. national security interests. These conflicts will likely shape a second term, even if they are resolved before then. Biden also aims to push for a two-state solution in the Middle East, creating an independent Palestinian country alongside Israel.

Fighting climate change has been one area where Biden has seen success. The Inflation Reduction Act includes significant funding for climate change initiatives, such as incentives for electric cars and clean energy. Biden is also pushing for stricter regulations on vehicles and power plants. However, independent analysts suggest that the U.S. is not yet on track to meet Biden's ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Overall, Biden's second-term agenda closely resembles his first-term agenda, with many of the same political challenges. Achieving his goals will require cooperation from Congress and overcoming opposition from Republicans.

As the 2024 election approaches, Biden's campaign is confident that his agenda will resonate with voters and present a clear contrast to the Republican alternative.
