House Democratic Party Showed a slight unity On Tuesday, it passed a budget resolution that would allow up to $ 3.5 trillion in domestic programs to pass by Democratic vote alone. However, the vote on the party line 220-212 is Tensioned 24-hour standoff Whatever happens with the larger package between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) And a group of 10 Centristo Democrats, the House of Representatives has already passed a bipartisan infrastructure deal in the Senate. It ends with a transaction that guarantees to vote.

Pelosi shrugged the controversy within the party and told the caucuses, “It’s only part of the legislative process.” Aide says Associated Press.. However, the legislative process is still in its infancy, and the party’s moderate and more progressive divisions are in a big battle over budget price tags and which parts of the blueprint (paid family vacations, free community colleges, child care, expansion). The benefits of Medicare, green infrastructure — will be the final law. Both factions can sink the entire Democratic agenda, as there is not enough room to vote in the Senate and few votes in the House of Representatives.

Former lawmaker Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Who chaired the House Financial Services Commission, said he didn’t think it would happen. Both moderates and progressives are working to “increase their leverage” and “do not practice unilateral disarmament if you want to move forward in politics.” Frank said Politico’s Renuka Rayasam on Tuesday. Many of the ten centrists did not vote with Pelosi as chairman. This is “a bigger denial than a different legislative strategy,” but eventually voted “they wanted to say yes.”

As the push rushes in, “we see the first major advance in the role of government that has been effective and popular for a very long time.” Frank predicted.. “The biggest reason this goes through is that it’s popular with the majority. Public opinion is more important than people think, especially when it comes to big problems.” That’s very bad for the Democratic Party, “he said. “Looking incompetent is never a good thing for a political party.”
