Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “House Passes $715 Billion Infrastructure Bill to Shape Biden’s Broader Plan” – below is their description.
President Joe Biden vowed Tuesday to keep up pressure on Congress until lawmakers pass both a bipartisan infrastructure deal and a larger tax and spending bill that would carry out the rest of his agenda.
“I’m going to be out there making the case for the American people until this job is done,” Biden said as he toured a transit facility in La Crosse, Wisconsin. “Until we bring this bipartisan deal home. Until our human infrastructure, also, needs are met. Until we have a fairer tax system to pay for all of this.”
Republicans are attempting to head off an effort by Democratic leaders to use a fast-track budget process to pass a Democrat-only bill with trillions of dollars in spending and tax hikes on the wealthy.
For Democratics, moving both measures through Congress nearly in tandem is key to passing the bipartisan bill in the two chambers because liberals don’t want to risk having their priorities — on climate, health and social programs — left behind while the bipartisan infrastructure plan becomes law.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
