Biden at Capitol to pitch $1.75T agenda, unite Democrats
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is traveling to Capitol Hill to pitch House Democrats on a dramatically scaled back domestic policy package.
It’s now $1.75 trillion and without a paid family leave program and other priorities. But it’s still a sweeping proposal with new health care, free-prekindergarten and climate change programs. Later, the president will make remarks at the White House.
The president has wanted to announce at least the framework of a deal before departing later Thursday on global summits.
Progressive House Democrats want to see the fine print of the big domestic bill before voting on a related infrastructure measure.
