Promises we’ve rated recently
Use a national commission to address policing issues
"I promise you there will be a national commission on policing out of the White House where I’ll bring everyone to the table, including police chiefs, including civil rights activists, including the NAACP, including the African, the Latino community. We’re going to sit down there and we’re going to work it out."
Make HBCUs, TCUs, and under-resourced MSIs more affordable for their students
"Make HBCUs, TCUs, and under-resourced MSIs more affordable for their students. The Biden plan will invest $18 billion in grants to these four-year schools, equivalent to up to two years of tuition per low-income and middle class student, including DREAMers and students who transfer to a four-year HBCU, TCU, or MSI from a tuition-free community college."
Create a pathway to citizenship for nearly 11 million people
"Joe Biden will work with Congress to pass legislation that creates a roadmap to citizenship for the nearly 11 million people who have been living in and strengthening our country for years."
Eliminate mandatory minimums for criminals
"Biden supports an end to mandatory minimums. As president, he will work for the passage of legislation to repeal mandatory minimums at the federal level. And, he will give states incentives to repeal their mandatory minimums.
Protect military personnel and veterans from deportation
"Protect undocumented members of our armed services, veterans, and their spouses from deportation, because if you are willing to risk your life for this country, you and your family have earned the chance to live safe, healthy, and productive lives in America. ... Biden will not target the men and women who served in uniform, or their families, for deportation."
Double number of immigration judges and staff
"Double the number of immigration judges, court staff, and interpreters."
Rebuild health stockpiles to be ready for crises
"Rebuild critical stockpiles, ensure adequate surge manufacturing capacity in times of crisis, and regularly review supply chain vulnerabilities."
"I’ll not only restore Obamacare, I’ll build on it."
Reduce high maternal mortality rate
"Reduce our unacceptably high maternal mortality rate, which disproportionately impacts Native mothers. From 2007 to 2016 Native women were 2.3 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white women. California came up with a strategy that halved the state’s maternal death rate. As president, Biden will reduce our unacceptably high maternal mortality rate, starting by taking the California strategy nationwide."
End wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East
"Biden will end the forever wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East, which have cost us untold blood and treasure. As he has long argued, Biden will bring the vast majority of our troops home from Afghanistan and narrowly focus our mission on Al-Qaeda and ISIS. And he will end our support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen."
Create national center to reduce veteran suicide
"Create a national center of excellence for reducing veteran suicide, similar to the National Center on Homelessness among Veterans."
Lower cost of prescription drugs
"I’m going to lower prescription drugs by 60%, and that’s the truth."
Give disadvantaged communities 40% of spending benefits related to clean energy
"Setting a goal that disadvantaged communities receive 40% of overall benefits of spending in the areas of clean energy and energy efficiency deployment; clean transit and transportation; affordable and sustainable housing; training and workforce development; remediation and reduction of legacy pollution; and development of critical clean water infrastructure."
Increase access to VA care beyond 5-year eligibility for combat veterans
"President Biden will also increase access to VA care beyond the 5-year eligibility window for combat veterans, as conditions related to toxic exposure may take many years to manifest."
Restore Cuba engagement
“Yes, I would. In large part, I would go back,” Biden said. “I’d still insist they keep the commitments they said they would make when we, in fact, set the policy in place.”
