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.ITV News YouTube Channel
