Dems fail to agree on path forward for Biden spending agenda after series of White House meetings
Dems pushing ‘unprecedented’ infrastructure spending at wrong time: Budget watchdog
Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget President Maya McGuineas on the administration pressing the infrastructure bill amid Hurricane Ida damages.
Nearly two dozen congressional Democrats were called to the White House on Wednesday as President Biden steps in to try to help his party reach an agreement on passing a bipartisan infrastructure bill along with his proposed $3.5 trillion social safety net.
But lawmakers reported afterward that while they have optimism that a deal could be reached to pass the administration's agenda, there is still work to be done.
The first meeting was with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, with another afternoon and then evening meeting following that involving a mix of House members and senators.
