House Begins Final Debate on $2 Trillion Spending Plan

Democrats could vote as soon as Thursday on the bill

On Thursday, the House opened debate on a sprawling, roughly $2 trillion package to overhaul the country's health care, education, climate, immigration and tax laws, hoping to advance the next piece of President Biden’s economic agenda before the end of the week.

The day began with a rallying cry from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.): Writing her Democratic caucus, she said that they are on the verge of clinching a “spectacular vision for the future,” less than two weeks after the party helped finalize a second, separate effort to invest anew in the nation’s infrastructure. Biden signed that bipartisan package into law Monday.

"It will create millions of good-paying jobs, lower families costs and cut their taxes, while making the wealthiest few and big corporations pay their fair share," Pelosi said in the letter.
