Pelosi says Congress is close to a deal on Biden’s social spending plan

“We have 90% of the bill agreed to and written, we just have some of the last decisions to be made,” Pelosi said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

When asked if Democrats will have a deal by the time President Joe Biden leaves for Europe at the end of the week, Pelosi seemed confident. “I think we’re pretty much there now,” she said. “It’s just the language of it.”…

Democrats have already had to cut its price tag from $3.5 trillion to $2 trillion or less, as part of an effort to appease centrist Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz.

“It is less than what was projected to begin with, but it is still bigger than anything we’ve done in terms of addressing the needs of American working families,” Pelosi said.
