The fate of Biden’s “Build Better” plan and the renewal of the US election are balanced in the fight for Democratic unity.
President Joe Biden’s cornerstone in the “Plan to Improve Taxes and Expenditures” was proposed by a young member of the US Congress when lawmakers return to work on Monday.
Mauritian Democrat Sen. Joe Mancin has rejected Biden’s $ 1.75 trillion plan, worrying about its cost.
The issue of national suffrage and the investigation into the January 6 riots are also high on Congress’s watch list.
The fact that the Democratic Party has a majority of members and the Senate is equally divided violates the law.
Make it better again
Biden made a one-on-one call to Mancini on Dec. 20 to try to implement “Better Development.”
Senior Democrats in Congress have said they will continue to work to build a middle class in the United States and approve a plan to combat the long-term threat of climate change.
“I had a good conversation with the President and the Speaker of Parliament, and we talked about the final approval talks on ‘Building Improvement. We can get that approved by the Senate,” said Chuck Schumer, a senior Democrat in the Senate. senate.
“As the president agreed to negotiate, it took more time, so we will work hand in hand to finalize the bill,” Sumer said.
Republicans are opposing the law as uncontrolled spending on social programs that could increase inflation, reduce workers’ wages and hurt the economy.
“They’ve repealed the bill, but $ 1.5 trillion isn’t a moderate amount. It’s a huge bill on taxes and spending,” Steve Scalise, a second Republican in the House of Representatives, told Fox Business Network’s Kudlow show. .
The Democrat legislature is targeting independent voters to Republicans because they think it’s crazy, and Scalise is working.
In addition to politics, the party has a policy motivation to approve Biden’s signing initiative, as it could increase tax breaks that benefit millions of low-income families with children. The bill also addresses new children for care, early childhood education and steam change.
Monthly payment of child tax credit in late December.
“We believe that ‘improving development’ is very important. It is very important. We hope there is a bigger legal decision.”
Right to vote
Democrat leaders are coming to the polls as there is no progress on the regular budget. The issue has been hotly debated nationally and since the 2020 presidential election, with former President Donald Trump still denying recognition and committing fraud.
Senator Rafael Warnock, a freshman from the Democratic Party of Georgia in the Senate, is pushing for a bill that would make it easier for Americans to vote.
Warnok’s leadership should create special rules for the majority to pass reform legislation by popular vote.
“The light of our democracy is now flashing,” Warnock said in a speech to the Senate.
Two Democrat-backed voting rights bills, the Electoral Freedom Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, have been approved by the House of Representatives and are awaiting the Senate after opposition Republicans veto them.
“We’ve been trying to join the Republican bipartisan efforts to protect democracy for a year, but they’ve resisted and barred the Senate from arguing so much on this issue,” Sumer said.
Senate Democrats are discussing in detail possible changes to the Senate’s charter that would allow Republican national reform to circumvent voting laws.
“Voting restrictions in the Republican-dominated state legislature are the most egregious attacks on the right to vote since the days of Jim Crowe, and they are approved on a party-wide basis,” Sumer said.
Biden called the latest debate on voting reform “productive” and called for “advancing suffrage legislation.”
January 6 investigation
Partisan hostility in the House is expected to escalate as the Electoral Commission, which is investigating the Jan. 6 riots of Trump supporters, stepped up.
The committee interviewed hundreds of witnesses before the riots, when Trump supporters suppressed police at the Capitol and disrupted official congressional efforts to ensure Biden won the election.
“The key question for the committee is: Did Donald Trump, by his actions or omissions, try to obstruct the official Congressional counting process?” Republican Liz Cheney said.
Dozens of Trump aides and associates have been summoned to court as they focus on Trump’s campaign to annul the election results and are expected to launch a high-profile public hearing soon.
It is obliged to inform the public about its pre-election conclusions.
At a time when global shortages of chips, Chinese competition and threats against Taiwan are threatening, Congress is working on major legislation to support US semiconductor manufacturing, but no progress has been made.
In a speech to the Detroit Economic Club in late November, Commerce Secretary Gina Raymondo said:
In December, a bipartisan group of senators introduced a law to invest in domestic semiconductor production, which would provide $ 52 billion in federal incentives to U.S. manufacturing.
Sen. Marsha Blackburn, the Republican’s leading sponsor of the bill, which seeks to reduce the United States’ dependence on suppliers in China, said the “recent shortage of chips around the world has cut off America’s supply of medical equipment, computers and cars.”
