“Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her Democratic colleagues on Monday that they should brace for ‘adjustments’ to the $3.5 trillion social spending package to fit the Senate’s constraints for the budget process lawmakers are using to fast-track the legislation through Congress,” CBS News reports.
Said Pelosi: “The president and Senate Democrats sent us a budget resolution with a cap of $3.5 trillion. I have promised that we would not have House members vote for a bill with a higher topline than would be passed by the Senate. Hopefully that will be at the $3.5 trillion number. We must be prepared for adjustments according to the Byrd rule and an agreed to number.”Save to Favorites
