President Biden will fly to Cincinnati on Wednesday to promote its economic agenda and attend a city hall broadcast on CNN, even if a bipartisan infrastructure deal he brokered is about to be formally tested in the Senate.
Mr. Biden will tour a union training center, the I.B.E.W./N.E.C.A. Electrical Training Center, where he should make comments pleading that his $ 4 trillion business plan will create high-paying union jobs.
The President will then travel to Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, where he will attend the City Hall broadcast at 8 p.m. East. Mr Biden will be asking questions about the impact of the $ 1.9 trillion economic aid bill he signed in March, White House officials said in Guidelines for Reporters, and about the two legislative components of its broader economic agenda.
That’s the bipartisan agreement to spend nearly $ 600 billion on repairing and building physical infrastructure like bridges and broadband internet, and a $ 3.5 trillion budget plan that Senate Democrats will use to support Mr Biden’s plans adopt affordable housing to build carbon dioxide energy, expand home health care for elderly and disabled Americans, and more.
While Mr Biden is absent, the Senators are preparing for a scheduled vote to move forward the bipartisan infrastructure framework, which has not yet been finalized nearly a month after Mr Biden and the centrist lawmakers were introduced to the White House. The outcome of the vote is uncertain; If it fails, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, the majority leader, may have to call another vote next week in hopes of moving the deal forward.
Government officials have started negotiations with Republicans and Democrats in the past few days to finalize the deal, including paying the expenses in full. While these talks continue, White House officials have made it clear in recent days that they support Mr Schumer’s attempts to enforce the law on Wednesday.
“There are no secrets about what is in this law – it was made in a bipartisan agreement,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday. “The only disagreement currently concerns some pay-fors that we are working through and discussing. But here too there are numerous precedents and we support Leader Schumer’s strategy to drive this forward. “
