Democrats are reportedly now attempting to quickly pass Joe Biden’s long promised and massive 1.75 trillion dollar ‘Build Back Better’ spending bill.
As The Hill reports:
House Democrats are racing this week to pass President Biden’s $1.75 trillion social and climate spending package, which would give the party a burst of momentum heading into the Thanksgiving recess.
Debate over the package has been filled with drama throughout the summer and fall, with progressive and centrists battling over the measure’s contents, pushing an embarrassing intraparty fight into the national spotlight.
Those battles will continue in the Senate, which is unlikely to take action on the measure before December. Centrist Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) — whose arguments have helped whittle the once $3.5 trillion package in half — have yet to formally back the measure, and more changes are possible.
All the same, Democrats feel they are on the verge of a huge milestone in the House, where passage would be a big victory for the party.
On Monday Biden is expected to sign into law the 1.2 trillion dollar ‘infrastructure’ bill which was officially passed by Congress last week.
