Biden Forced To Make Major Changes To The Far-Left Spending Bill

Sleepy Joe is doing everything he can to appease his moderate friends in Congress and pass what appears to be the backbone of his political agenda. Without the trillions in social safety net spending, Joe Biden and the Democrats have nothing besides mounting failures to get voters on their side.

Biden floated a new price tag for his proposed entitlement spending agenda, as Senate moderates continue to signal opposition to his multitrillion-dollar proposal.

Biden is now asking for a bill that spends $1.9 to $2.2 trillion, according to White House insiders after a conference call between Biden and Democrat leftists in the House led by Rep. Pramila Jayapal.

It was noted Democrat ‘Squad’ members – AOC, Ilhan Omar, and the other one – were deliberately left out of the conference call.

It remains unclear whether Democrat Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin will support Biden’s new proposal. Sinema has not detailed a top-line figure for the entitlement spending bill. Manchin has floated a $1.5 trillion measure, a price that remains dramatically lower than the Democrat leftists want.

“That’s not going to happen,” Jayapal said Sunday about the $1.5 trillion proposal.

Biden wants the bill to pay for two years of free college, free universal pre-K, subsidized child and elder care, and increased levels of food stamps, steps he argues are critical for American families.

The president will travel to Michigan on Tuesday to detail how his plan will help Americans, in an effort to steer away from the dramatic headlines focusing on the level of spending and tax hikes to pay for it.

Meanwhile, Leftist activists are on a mission to harass Sinema and Manchin into supporting the bill even after getting some criticism for filming her as she went into a bathroom Sunday.

Sinema was confronted on an airplane by a DACA activist and was welcomed back to Washington, DC, with more protesters at the airport.

Activists also paddled to Manchin’s Washington, DC, houseboat in kayaks last week to protest his lack of support for the bill.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have extended the deadline to October 31 for Democrats to work out their particular issues surrounding the bill. It’s not yet known which direction the party will go – either with the radical Left wing who seeks upwards of $5 trillion in new spending, or the moderates who still support trillions in spending, but have at least tempered their needs to appease constituents.
