Washington The US House of Representatives decided to postpone the vote on the infrastructure law on Thursday (local time). According to House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi, some Democrats will insist on not voting if they cannot vote on a single $ 1.85 trillion social and climate package.
“The good news is that most MPs who are not ready to vote yes today have agreed to support the infrastructure bill,” Pelosi said in a statement to his Democrats. Dozens of House Democrats opposed a quick vote on the $ 1 trillion infrastructure bill, with their leader saying Thursday that a deal on a major welfare bill is pending.
White House press secretary Jen Zhaki said the $ 1.85 trillion package on the infrastructure bill and tackling social spending and climate change would soon be passed by Congress. U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday unveiled a plan for climate action, preschool and other social initiatives that he said would unite Democrats, but was rejected by some members of his party.
