Contributing sentiments towards policy:

58% : The rest of the funding would go toward mandatory spending on programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
49% : To address "longstanding inequities" and strengthen "civil rights protections," the Biden administration proposed Congress provide the U.S. Justice Department with $367 million "to support police reform, the prosecution of hate crimes, enforcement of voting rights, and efforts to provide equitable access to justice."
48% : The White House proposed $3.2 billion for state and local grants to "support law enforcement, crime prevention and community violence intervention" as well as $1.7 billion for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives "to expand multijurisdictional gun trafficking strike forces with additional personnel, increase regulation of the firearms industry, [and] enhance ATF's National Integrated Ballistic Information Network."
47% : Biden's budget proposal asks lawmakers to end "special treatment for the types of income that wealthy people enjoy" by creating a minimum tax on multi-millionaires and billionaires that would ensure those people pay at least 20% of their total income in federal income taxes"This minimum tax would apply only to the wealthiest 0.01 percent of households -- those with more than $100 million -- and over half the revenue would come from billionaires alone," the budget proposal states.
