Blunt: $2Trillion Spending Bill is Risk for Democrats

(Missourinet) US Senator Roy Blunt says the social spending bill pushed by President Joe Biden is a political risk for Democrats.

Sen. Blunt, a Republican, says House Democrats will vote for the roughly 2 Trillion dollar social spending and climate change package at their own peril.

House leaders haven’t been able to get enough support for the measure to bring it to the floor for a vote, even though it has been pared down from the original 3-point-5 Trillion dollar price tag.

The House has passed, narrowly, the 1-point-2 Trillion dollar infrastructure bill passed earlier by the Senate. It goes to the president for his signature as Democrats scramble to get the votes needed to advance the bigger bill.
