I got bills

President Biden was pleased this week with the passing of his $1.2tr infrastructure bill. Though sundry Democrats had vowed to only approve both of the proposed spending bills as a package, several Republicans joined in voting for the BIF. Zerohedge summarized what’s in the bill, including some pretty crazy stuff. Wrangling over the “Build Back Better” bill is continuing, with Senator Manchin still holding out on particular details. The original proposal of 12 weeks paid family leave was taken out to satisfy the senator, but four weeks leave was added back in by the Speaker.
