    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” White House Domestic Policy Council Director Susan Rice stated that the most important thing “that we can do in the very near term that will have a real impact on the finances of Americans is to pass the Build Back Better legislation and enact it into law.”
  • Clyburn: CBO Might Say Spending Bill Isn’t Paid For, ‘They’re the Experts, We’ll Be Guided by What They Say,’ Biden’s ‘Not an Expert’ on CBO

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) stated that while the White House and Democrats believe the Build Back Better reconciliation bill will be fully paid for, the Congressional Budget Office might think differently. Clyburn said that if they do, “they’re the experts, we’ll be guided by what they say,” “Even the president’s not an expert in CBO scoring standards,” and that CBO analysis takes into account things that Congressional or White House analysis might miss. Clyburn stated the White House and Democrats promised that the bill will be paid for. He continued, “Now,...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is gearing up for a vote this week on President Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar social welfare legislation, but strong divisions remain among Democrats over the size and scope of the final bill. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters Monday that she was eager to push through the legislation during an event at the White House commemorating Mr. Biden’s signing of the bipartisan infrastructure package. “I’m so happy that hopefully this week we will be passing Build Back Better [legislation] to get tax cuts to America’s working families, to create millions of more jobs, to lower health care costs, and all...

    President Biden on Monday signed into law a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill at a boisterous ceremony outside the White House, sealing a major accomplishment of his first term. Weeks of talks and two trips to the Capitol from Biden culminated earlier this month in a bipartisan vote, with the House passing the bill 228-206. Thirteen Republicans crossed the aisle to support the measure, and six progressive Democrats bucked Biden and party leaders to oppose it.
  • VP Harris says inflation a ‘source of stress’ that $1.75T bill will fix

    Vice President Kamala Harris said Friday that inflation is “a source of stress for families” due to the high cost of food and gas, but claimed President Biden’s nearly $2 trillion social spending bill would fix the problem — despite doubts from centrist Democrats who control the bill’s fate. Harris said at a press conference in France that the Biden administration takes the issue “very seriously” — adopting a new, more sober White House stance after officials for months insisted that rising prices were “transitory.” “Prices have gone up and families and individuals are dealing with the realities that bread...

    Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday claimed a nearly $2 trillion social and environmental spending bill is “poised to pass soon” — despite centrist Democrats hitting the brakes after a new report showed inflation at a three-decade high. Harris, speaking at an Armistice Day event in France, touted passage last week of a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill while saying she’s confident Congress will pass the more contentious and larger spending bill put forth by President Biden. “Just before I traveled here, our Congress passed a landmark piece of legislation to make a historic investment in our nation’s infrastructure. Another...

    Congress has paved the way for more than a trillion dollars in infrastructure spending targeted at filling the country’s potholes, installing broadband to rural areas and delivering clean water into homes that, even in 2021, still go without. The bill is huge, with spending set aside for projects years away, and it includes billions of dollars that will find their way to Utah. Although the massive legislation received support from both Democrats and Republicans, only one member of Utah’s federal delegation supported and championed the bill: Sen. Mitt Romney.
  • House passes $1 trillion infrastructure bill, votes to move ahead with larger bill (Can we read it now?)

    resident Joe Biden took to the phones for last-minute calls to key House members as Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed through two critical votes late Friday on the Democratic agenda: the president's $1.75 trillion "Build Back Better" social spending and climate policy package and the separate $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan. The final vote on the infrastructure plan, already passed by the Senate, passed 228-206, with 13 Republicans joining Democrats and six Democrats voting against. The bill will now be sent to Biden's desk for signature. In the end, it took 87 days following the passage of the bill in the...

    White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Friday that President Biden wouldn’t wait to sign the infrastructure bill and would sign it after it passes the House. “If the infrastructure bill is passed today, he will sign it,” Jean-Pierre told reporters during a briefing Friday afternoon. “It’s important to get that done for the American public.” Jean-Pierre stressed, however, that both the infrastructure bill and broader spending package are “critically important” to Biden.

    Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm touted funding in the bipartisan infrastructure bill for direct-air capture demonstration projects, calling the provision “really exciting” during an address at the COP26 international climate summit in Glasgow Friday, While Granholm touted the Energy Department’s current work on carbon reduction, she said that “what’s really exciting is what’s being voted on today, I hope, in Congress, cross our fingers.” Democratic leaders are hoping to hold House votes Friday on the bipartisan infrastructure bill and a separate social spending and climate measure. The former would go straight to the White House for President Biden's signature if it...

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told CNBC during an interview on Friday that the spending bill that Democrats are proposing would lower inflation by reducing household costs including health care. “I don't think that these investments will drive up inflation at all. First of all, they're fully paid for and not by imposing higher taxes on anyone earning under $400,000. But by asking corporations, high-income individuals to pay their fair share, and by investing in the Internal Revenue Service so that they can boost compliance which has fallen to low levels,” Yellen said during an interview in Rome, where she is...

    (CNN)For a political party, controlling the White House and Congress isn't the picnic it's made out to be. Politicians who find themselves in this treasured position enter office with grand ambitions, even if they control only slim majorities in Congress. Those ambitions often run into a harsh reality, as the frustrating last few months for the Democrats demonstrate. President Joe Biden has attempted to maneuver a massive domestic agenda through the Democratic Congress, but now heads off to Europe to attend the G20 and COP26 fearing that he might end up with nothing. The political risks are immense. Other Democratic...

"Having it finished with all the t's and the i's and everything you know crossed and dotted that will be difficult from the Senate side because we have an awful lot of text to go through, but as far as conceptually we should, I really believe," Manchin told reporters on Monday. Manchin added that Democrats "should be" able to reach a deal on a framework this week, adding that "it really...

    Gov. Gavin Newsom has rejected a bill that would have made California the first state to pay people to stay sober. But just because Newsom vetoed the bill on Friday does not mean the drug treatment program won't happen in California. Newsom supports the treatment, known as contingency management. But he wants to test it out first before signing a law to make it permanent.

    Following a dramatic week on Capitol Hill, a moderate Democratic senator from Arizona slammed leaders of her own party over their 'inexcusable' failure to hold a vote on the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema — one of the key holdouts on the budget bill — took to Twitter Saturday, calling the canceled vote 'deeply disappointing' and a betrayal of the trust of the American people. 'The failure of the U.S. House to hold a vote on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is inexcusable, and deeply disappointing for communities across our country,' Sinema wrote.
