He’s on a roll with the passage of the stimulus package….
But THAT sent money to millions of Americans….
This new package will not get thru Congress looking like what is presented today….
(But it IS a good politics for Biden , who is doing VERY well with a majority of Americans who have a new President that seems about us, NOT just about his own ego and his own money….And is GOING BIG)
Several basic reasons….
Biden is talking quietly behind the scenes with Republicans already….
They have indicated that they will fall back to their old position that Republicans CAN spend money…
They don’t want Democrats to …..
Biden is talking raising taxes….
Biden is talking about free eduction…
Other things that employers would have pay people for not being at work…
America is lifting itself out of pandemic economy…
Republicans and even some Democrats are NOT gonna excited about some of this stuff…
Biden also wants a Infrastructure package along with this….
THAT package will probably attract more support from lawmakers….
We’ll see how this goes….
But Joe Biden certainly is NOT Donald Trump….
And MORE Americans seem happy with this….
The White House’s latest spending plan, its third since the inauguration, faces steep obstacles to passage — probably to an extent the administration has not seen yet on one of its top legislative priorities.
After passage of its $1.9 trillion stimulus plan with Democratic votes only, the Biden administration has faced bipartisan criticism over much of its approximately $2.3 trillion jobs and infrastructure proposal. Congressional Republicans have balked both at the scope of that plan and the corporate tax increases proposed by the White House to fund it. Democrats could again try to approve the package without Republican votes, but several centrist Democrats have called for the infrastructure bill to be bipartisan, complicating its path to passage.
Biden has signaled he’s open to negotiation on much of his agenda and has called on Republicans to try to reach a compromise.
The bandwidth in Congress for another multitrillion-dollar spending effort remains highly uncertain. Some congressional aides think lawmakers are months away from taking up the families plan.
“They’re all focused right now on the infrastructure plan. Those are already very difficult conversations,” said Bill Galston, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, a Washington-based think tank. “Even without knowing what’s in the families plan, there’s going to be less Republican support than the infrastructure plan. So, it just gets harder.”
White House officials say the latest plan is necessary to meet persistent problems in the American economy.
The plan would include hundreds of billions of dollars for education funding, including funding to make two-year community colleges tuition-free…..
Parts of the plan already have come under fire from conservatives, liberals and even some members of Democratic leadership….
