US Senate votes to pass Joe Biden’s ‘historic’ climate, tax and healthcare package | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “US Senate votes to pass Joe Biden’s ‘historic’ climate, tax and healthcare package | ITV News” – below is their description.

The US Senate has voted to advance a major climate, healthcare, and tax bill after a marathon debate and series of amendments that went through the night.

President Joe Biden’s landmark package is aimed at lowering healthcare costs, raising corporation taxes, reducing the federal budget deficit and strengthening efforts to combat climate change.

The Bill passed strictly along party lines, 50 to 50, with US Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called the bill “historic” as Senators prepared to vote on its passage.

The bill now heads to the US House of Representatives, which is expected to come into session on Friday, 12 August. If it passes, it will be sent for Biden’s signature.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
