Biden to meet with Dems on Capitol Hill to discuss economic agenda, infrastructure bill

Asia's Tech News Daily

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden is headed to Capitol Hill on Thursday to brief House Democrats on his economic agenda and a separate bipartisan infrastructure deal as he looks to push for their passage after months of negotiations, according to a White House official.

Upon his return to the White House, Biden is expected to deliver remarks about “the path forward on his economic agenda and the next steps to getting it done,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss details of his plan. 

Biden’s trip to Capitol Hill comes hours before he is expected to leave Europe to attend the Group of 20 summit in Rome, followed by the United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.

The president wanted to have at least a framework on his social spending package before he left for Europe. But Democrats in the House and Senate have struggled to reach an agreement over disputes on key provisions of Biden’s economic package, which aims to expand the social safety net, and how to pay for it.
