Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.4

A group of moderate Democrats is threatening Nancy Pelosi with blocking the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package. Top Democrats wanted to pass the budget reconciliation, along with the infrastructure bill, without Republican support. However, there is less support for the reconciliation package: according to polls, 72 percent of voters agree with an infrastructure bill, while 57 percent oppose spending $4.7 trillion in both bills.
