House Passes $3.5 Trillion Budget Plan

A divided House on Tuesday (Aug. 24) approved a $3.5 trillion budget plan that would introduce a huge expansion of the social safety net and climate programs, a report said.

Approving the budget was a major step in Democrats’ drive to enact their top priorities — including huge investments in education, child care, health care, paid leave, and tax increases on wealthy people and corporations — over united Republican opposition. They were able to vote one on Tuesday and move quickly on legislation that would achieve those goals. A late September deadline was set for the bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure package.

It was only possible after leaders resisted a revolt by conservative-leaning Democrats. They withheld their votes until they got a promise to vote for the infrastructure bill by Sept. 27. After a campaign of pressure by the White House and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (California), who negotiated and coerced her way to unanimous Democratic support for a measure that had been blocked just hours earlier, the breakthrough was achieved, the report said.

Although some Republicans may support the bipartisan infrastructure bill (which is expected to be passed), they are all opposed to the budget blueprint. They have concerns about the budget’s size, proposed tax increases, and the possibility of higher inflation.

On party lines, the vote was 220 to 212, to approve the budget plan. Future votes will be allowed on the infrastructure bill as well as a voting rights measure. The House passed the bill soon after.
