Is There Enough Votes For Infrastructure Bill?
On capitol hill there’s a lot of negotiations going on right now as congress is trying to stop a government shutdown that will take place tonight at midnight if a resolution is not reached on this infrastructure bill.
Joe Biden has a $3.5 Trillion proposal on the table but there are people like Joe Manchin who is proposing a different amount of 1.2 Trillion. So far no deal has been agreed upon and right now there are talks that the bill does not have enough votes to pass. So there is a real possibility that it doesn’t even make it to the floor today to be voted on. So now everyone is waiting to see what the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi does and so we wait while the back and forth negotiations continue.
