(Worthy News) – The House Tuesday voted on a deal to adopt the framework for President ’s $3.5 trillion budget and advance the bipartisan bill after Democratic leadership and moderates broke an hours-long stalemate over how the two would be prioritized in the coming weeks.

The deal, which passed 220-212 on a party-line vote, allows for the House to begin crafting its reconciliation bill and sets the infrastructure package up to pass the chamber on Sept. 27. It followed multiple Rules Committee hearings and hours of intraparty deliberations between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her team and a group of moderate Democrats who insisted on taking up the infrastructure bill first, directly opposed to both dozens of progressives and the speaker herself.

On the House floor, Pelosi said the deal represented “a great day of pride for our country and Democrats,” adding that “by Oct. 1, we will hope to have in place … the legislation for infrastructure that is bipartisan.” [ Source: Daily Caller (Read More…) ]
