Progressives demand vote on $3.5T budget resolution before infrastructure bill
Rep. Jason Smith: Democrats ‘threatening’ House members over budget vote
House Budget Committee member tells ‘The Evening Edit’ Dems don’t have the votes to pass the budget bill
Progressive lawmakers are pushing for a final vote on a $3.5 trillion budget resolution before committing to a bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill that has already passed in the Senate.
The multitrillion-dollar budget blueprint cleared a key hurdle Tuesday in a 220-212 vote along party lines after moderate lawmakers had threatened to withhold their votes for it until the House first approved the $1 trillion plan for more traditional infrastructure.
