Biden Announces $1.85 Trillion Framework for Climate and Safety Net Plan
*

-President Biden went to the Capitol to discuss the package, though White House officials would not say if all holdout Democrats had promised to support it.

-The plan leaves out several major proposals, including paid family leave and lowering drug costs.President Biden went to the Capitol on Thursday to announce a “framework” agreement for a $1.85 trillion social safety net and climate change bill that would bolster support for child care and early childhood education while coaxing the economy away from fossil fuels.“It’s a good day,” Mr. Biden said as he arrived. “Everyone’s on board” with his proposal, he added.

He was pushing to convince liberal members that a final compromise was close enough to allow them to support a separate, $1 trillion infrastructure bill that has already passed the Senate.

But liberals were still skeptical and said they wanted more than talking points.

“There’s been so many changes in this process — so many people, you know, yes, no, doing the Hokey Pokey, one foot in one foot out,” said Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat of New York, as she headed into the meeting. “We need certainty that we’re going to be able to deliver.”

===============================================

My 2 cents opinion:
After so much fighting with the past president’s non-agenda on protecting the average citizen, the supposed liberal party of the U.S. hesitates on delivering what its candidate promised. This might be their last chance, the opposition is hoping failure to deliver will mean good news for the former president. Después de tanta lucha con la no agenda del ex presidente sobre la protección del ciudadano promedio, el supuesto partido liberal de Estados Unidos duda en cumplir lo que prometió su candidato. Esta podría ser su última oportunidad, la oposición espera que el incumplimiento signifique buenas noticias para el ex presidente.
