Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Promises to Get Infrastructure Bill Done” – below is their description.
President Joe Biden told Democratic lawmakers on a visit to Capitol Hill that the infrastructure bill awaiting a vote in the House will depend on getting a deal on what’s set to be a slimmed-down social spending package.
Biden met with the party’s congressional caucus as House lawmakers were trying to break a stalemate that’s holding up a vote on legislation for $550 billion in new spending on infrastructure.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had set plans for a vote Friday as she and the White House attempted to negotiate a deal on a framework for a separate, expansive tax and spending package that will carry the bulk of Biden’s plans.
