Democrats Are ‘Pretty Much There’ On Spending Bill, Says Speaker Pelosi

Democrats have almost reached an agreement on a social spending bill that is a pared-down version of President Joe Biden’s priorities and plan to vote on that and an infrastructure bill in the coming week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday.

“I think we are pretty much there now,” Speaker Pelosi said when asked if an agreement would be reached before the president leaves for Europe on Friday.

WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 28: U.S. President Joe Biden removes his face mask before addressing a joint session of Congress as Vice President Kamala Harris (L) and Speaker of the House U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) look on in the House chamber of the U.S. Capitol April 28, 2021, in Washington, DC. On the eve of his 100th day in office, Biden spoke about his plan to revive America’s economy and health as it continues to recover from a devastating pandemic. He delivered his speech before 200 invited lawmakers and other government officials instead of the normal 1600 guests because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

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

Sunday’s breakfast meeting at President Biden’s home in Delaware was announced after it had taken place, and had given some of the complicated issues that need to be resolved, sources told Reuters. But several hours after the meeting was made public, there was no word on what, if any, progress was made. But Senators Schumer and Manchin are meeting to finalize some of the particulars. “I’m optimistic that we can do that,” Speaker Pelosi said.

Asked if votes on the two bills would be held in the coming week, Pelosi said, “That’s the plan.”
