President Biden met on Tuesday with moderates and progressives to give confidence to both groups of lawmakers that the cost of his legislative agenda would be between $1.7 and $1.9 billion dollars. While the lawmakers praised Biden’s efforts, progressives now admit that they may only be able to fund such programs as the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and climate focused initiatives for only a one-to-two-year period. With many concessions yet to be made, Congress still aims to vote on the legislation by October 31.
