WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden appears unable to quickly reach an agreement with two hesitant Democratic senators on his major overhaul of the $3.5 trillion government.
This will likely mean trimming for the measure which will fall without their support.
Sens are the focus of attention. Joe Manchin from West Virginia and Kyrsten Synema from Arizona explain the packages they are comfortable with.
Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker, suggested that she could suspend Thursday’s vote on the $1 trillion-plus bill for public works without altering Biden’s package.
In the meantime, Congress made progress toward resolving another issue regarding government funding.
CNN reports Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that Democrats reached an agreement to support a bill that would fund the government until December. A vote will take place on Thursday.
