WASHINGTON, August 2, 2021 (AFP) – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said on Sunday (1) that US senators scrapped the infrastructure bill promoted by President Joe Biden that could be ratified in a matter of days. .
The group of Democrats and some Republicans working on that plan have “finished writing the text of the infrastructure bill,” Schumer told the upper house, which met extravagantly over the weekend.
“I think the Senate will be able to process the amendments and pass this legislation in the next few days,” he continued.
More than 2,000 pages of text, according to the US press, point to spending on tasks in the order of a trillion dollars and one of the pillars of Joe Biden’s mandate.
The Democratic president intends to renovate and build bridges, roads, pipelines and Internet networks.
Biden’s other big economic and social gamble is passing a $3.5 billion plan to invest in what he calls “human” infrastructure.
However, Democrats do not have a Republican voice to support the plan, which provides massive funding for the education system, families, the environment, and health care.
Joe Biden’s great political project is to make the United States an alternative to the Chinese authoritarian model, which means being at the forefront of innovation, but guaranteeing jobs and prosperity for the middle class.
