Now that President Biden’s “Build Back Better” package has cleared the U-S House, the next hurdle is the Senate — where analysts say it also faces a tough road after the Thanksgiving recess, even though Democrats control that chamber also. Seventh District Minnesota Congresswoman, Republican Michelle Fischbach says the 1.85-trillion-dollar bill is “just too big”:
“Hopefully the Senate — the Senate Republicans — will be able to hold some of it off — …and then it… has to come back to the House again too, if they make any changes.”
Analysts say the Senate could well make changes to the bill, most likely in the area of tax policy. Democrats in the House could then afford very few defectors within their ranks in order to get the revised bill to the president’s desk.
