WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden appears unable to strike swift agreement with two wavering Democratic senators over his big $3.5 trillion government overhaul.
This likely means that the measure will be cut, and they won’t support it.
Sens are the focus of attention. Joe Manchin from West Virginia and Kyrsten Silenza of Arizona will be describing the size of the package they are willing to live with.
Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker, suggested she may postpone Thursday’s vote on the companion $1 trillion public works bill. However, Biden’s package is not moving.
The Congress came closer to resolving an additional issue about funding the government past Thursday’s fiscal-yearend.
CNN reports Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority Leader, informed Congress that Democrats had reached an agreement with Republicans to pass a bill that would fund the government through early December. The vote is set for Thursday.
