The message to White House senior staff as President Joe Biden’s foundation legislative proposal nears completion is easy, if blunt: there is “absolutely no room for complacency.”
A two-page memorandum, prepared by White House senior advisor Anita Dunn as well as National Economic Council Supervisor Brian Deese, hails the work that has actually been done to put the $1.9 trillion Covid relief plan on the verge of ending up being law after the Us senate passed the procedure Saturday.
“Washington — The Senate approved President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package Saturday, over 24 hours after opening debate on the bill. A grueling amendment process, known as a “vote-a-rama,” was stalled for nearly 12 hours on Friday due to disagreements within the Democratic caucus over an unemployment insurance benefit.
The final vote was 50-49, with all Democrats voting in favor of the bill and all Republicans voting against it. The passage of the bill was met with cheers and applause from Democrats, celebrating the passage of one of Mr. Biden’s key priorities. Vice President Kamala Harris did not need to visit the Capitol to break any ties, as GOP Senator Dan Sullivan left due to a family emergency on Friday.”Source
