Senate Democrats unveiled a $3.5 trillion “infrastructure” bill that they will try to pass through “reconciliation” with ZERO Republican votes needed.
This bill is in addition to the $1 trillion ‘bipartisan’ infrastructure, bill bringing the total spending to approximately $4.5 trillion.
The Democrats can’t get rid of the filibuster so they are using reconciliation for the second time this year to force their agenda onto the American people.
“We are very proud of this plan. We know we have a long road to go. We’re going to get this done for the sake of making average Americans’ lives a whole lot better,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.
The bill will include Medicare expansion, funding for child care and money to battle climate change.
