Another proposal would raise the income tax rate on individuals earning more than $400,000 a year.

Capital gains tax rates would also go up for people earning at least $1 million annually.

The tax increases could bring in $2 trillion according to the Bloomberg report. No date has yet been set for an announcement.


Raising taxes will serve as a key test for the nascent administration as it navigates a 50-50 Senate in which moderate Democratic lawmakers like Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Krysten Sinema of Arizona play an outsized role.

The infrastructure proposal is sure to ignite a firestorm of criticism from Republicans, and possibly some moderate Democrats, who are worried about the exorbitant level of government spending.
