(Worthy News) – President Joe Biden on Friday said Democrats’ $3.5 trillion social spending bill will likely not pass Congress this year.
“To be honest with you, we’re probably not going to get $3.5 trillion this year,” Biden said. “We’re going to get something less than that. But I’m going to negotiate, I’m going to get it done.” Biden’s words mark the first apparent concession to centrist holdouts Sens. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.), who took issue with the size and scope of the bill.
Senate Democrats had planned on passing the massive bill via budget reconciliation, a process that allows a simple majority of senators to enact legislation as part of the congressional budget resolution. The bill faced opposition from Manchin and Sinema for including left-wing policy proposals such as federal subsidies for child care, paid leave, and health care, as well as funds for green energy and climate change initiatives.
