This delay is a clear setback in democratic history, and he wants to mark American history with these 5,000 projects.
Officials elected from the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives returned to Washington on Monday.
These steps are important for Democrats to move Biden’s plans forward toward the final passage of Congress, which was not expected until the fall. Democrat leaders hoped the House would pass this formal stage without any hindrance but tensions between the Left and Democratic centrists have emerged in recent days.
Differences to be prioritized
Despite several hours of talks, no agreement was reached by midnight and Democrat leaders decided to adjourn the meeting until noon on Tuesday (4:00 pm GMT). A referendum may be held in the afternoon if the party can come to an agreement.
At the center of democratic divisions: the controversy over whether one or the other of the investment plans should be given priority.
On August 10, the Senate approved Biden’s $ 1.2 trillion infrastructure investment plan, which includes $ 550 billion in new spending. Rarely, he was supported by many Republicans.
A dozen moderate Democrats in the House are demanding immediate approval for this plan, which is very popular with Americans.
But Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised the left would vote first on other social elements of the Biden plan: a massive $ 3.5 trillion investment plan for the city. Education, health, job market and climate.
She believes that the only way to ensure that both plans are approved in the House is where she has only a very narrow majority, because the Left is strong with a hundred elected members.
If the referendum first takes place on infrastructure, the more centrist decides not to support the social spending plan and considers it too heavy.
Republicans rubbed their hands
Discussions will continue Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. (1 p.m. GMT) at the scheduled meeting of the House of Representatives.
Joe Biden, who was already in trouble due to the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, is following these talks very closely. Republicans laughed at the democratic setback Monday night.
The referendum, which is now set for Tuesday, is linked to a resolution setting the framework for a social reform plan: $ 3.5 trillion and broad definitions.
The Senate approved only the democratic vote.
Democrats have until Sept. 15 to negotiate and draft its exact content.
Promising that it will be difficult to find an agreement here between the party’s left and more centrists, moderates have already said the bill is too high.
