Let’s talk about spending. Two bills with two separate paths to passage are being debated in Congress. The first plan which covers ‘hard infrastructure’ is heading towards agreement and bi-partisan support. However, when it comes to ‘soft infrastructure’, Republicans are in stanch opposition.
Because of this, Democrats may attempt to pass this legislation through reconciliation, requiring only a simple majority.
The question we’ll debate this week is ‘should these bills pass?’ And if so, HOW should they pass? Further – we’ll talk in more broad terms about federal spending and what, if anything can be done to change it’s trajectory.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts as always and we’re looking forward to continuing the podcasts and including conversations with guests in upcoming episodes. Have a great week, everyone.
