(TheConservativeNews.org) – Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill isn’t appealing to some moderate Democrats in Congress. While Congressional Republicans unsurprisingly oppose the infrastructure bill, Democratic opposition is a surprise. After recent meetings with moderates and progressives, President Biden insists that he feels more confident.
Meanwhile, Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, noted that the window for negotiating the spending plan is closing. Psaki mentioned all intervening parties felt a sense of urgency to finalize Biden’s package. The Press Secretary asserted that President Biden believes his plan’s path forward will benefit all Americans with economic growth.
With the deadline of October 31 that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi set, the window is indeed closing, and quickly. President Biden noted the infrastructure bill would need to see a decrease in price from the original $3.5 trillion to between $1.9 and $2.2 trillion, numbers that seem to sit well with both progressives and moderates in Congress.
The press secretary didn’t disclose any discussion details but insisted that there was a collective commitment to allow working-class families more breathing room, investing in future industries, and addressing climate change. Biden allegedly urged Congress to unite and come to an agreement before he sets off for the Glasgow United Nations Climate Change Conference, according to Representative Ro Khanna (D-CA).
