In more good news for President Joe Biden, the centrist Democratic Blue Dog Coalition is pledging to “move swiftly to send the bill to the President’s desk,” Punchbowl News reports.
“No one expected the group of centrist House Democrats to hold up the legislation. Many Democrats feel the bill is critical to their chances of staving off deep losses in the midterms.”
“But the Blue Dog endorsement of the bill will provide relief to Democratic vote-counters. Democrats can only afford to lose four votes on the reconciliation package on Friday. Add this to the folding from the ‘No SALT, no deal’ caucus, and final passage of the Inflation Reduction Act may not be as dramatic as some Democrats had feared.”Save to Favorites
