On Capitol Hill, the Democratic-led House has approved a $3.5 trillion budget resolution to vastly expand the social safety net and combat the climate crisis. Not a single Republican voted to move the process forward. In a deal to win support from conservative Democrats, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi agreed to set a September 27 deadline to vote on a separate bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. Many progressive lawmakers are demanding a vote on the $3.5 trillion plan prior to the bipartisan infrastructure deal.
