The House passed the Democrats’ massive social spending and climate plan Friday morning by a 220-213 vote, shutting down months of negotiations marked by internal party clashes and deliberations between both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.

The bill – which includes investment in education, health care and combating climate change – is now going to the Senate, where lawmakers are expected to start considering after the Thanksgiving break.

“I expected that when we move to the Senate, we will have a lot of momentum, we will work as the congressional process does, we will work to get a bill through the Senate. We need 50 votes, and then it will go back to the house and to the president’s desk, ”Deese told Fox News Sunday host Bret Baier.

However, the legislation is likely to undergo a number of changes in the Senate before a vote is scheduled. Adjustments are expected to be made after Senate MPs have completed a review of the legislation, and in response to opposition from some senators to specific provisions in the bill.

The New York Democrat told host Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that she is optimistic she can continue talking to Manchin about ways to keep the provision in the spending package.

Republicans, however, have a completely different view. While the GOP is not involved in the Build Back Better Act legislative process due to budget reconciliation, a number of top Republicans are tapping the bill for its hefty price tags and proposals that would raise taxes to generate investment funding.

The legislation proposes to implement a tax rate of at least 15 percent on companies reporting more than $ 1 billion in profits, as a way for the party to plan to fund the bill’s investments. Biden has consistently said the bill will be paid in full, although a recent report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) paints a different picture.

Congress’s scorekeeper revealed in an assessment Thursday that when you include the bill’s tax deduction in the top-line number, the price tag jumps to about $ 2.4 million, which is significantly higher than the administration’s original $ 1.75 trillion limit.

In an interview with John Catsimatidis at WABC 770 AM, Johnson appeared to refer to the provisions of the spending package as “giveaway programs”, arguing that the party can only get funding for middle-class investments “because that’s where the money is,” despite their plans to tax wealthy businesses.

“They do not really bear the burden of the tax increase,” Johnson said. “They just pass it on to consumers and to their employees in lower wages and benefits. So yes, it is the middle class that always pays. ”
