On the eve of Tuesday, August 24, 2021, in a 220-212 party-line vote, the House approved a $3.5 trillion budget resolution and advanced a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill and moving forward with sweeping voting rights legislation. Democrats are trying to pass their $3.5 trillion proposal to expand the social safety net without a single vote from Republicans, who oppose the spending and the proposed tax increases to pay for it. After centrist threatened to derail Democrats’ economic agenda by pushing for swift approval of the Senate-passed infrastructure plan, party leaders pledged to vote on it by September 27, 2021.
