Rep. Kevin McCarthy said Republicans will have “one more bite in the apple” to defeat President Biden’s $ 1.75 trillion Build Back Better Plan if the Senate passes the law and it returns to Parliament.
“If it fails in the Senate, it dies. But if the Senate changes it, any of those changes must return to the House. So we have another bite in the apple here,” McCarthy, the House Minority Leader, told Fox News. Sunday Morning Futures. “
McCarthy (R-Calif.), Who spoke in Parliament overnight on Friday for 8 hours and 33 minutes to halt a vote on the social spending plan, said he did so because the American people need to know what is in the legislation of the Democrats. .
“I want people to know what’s on the bill. I want people to know what they’re doing – that this great government socialism is not working,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy went on to say that Democrats understand how their “big government” policies are hurting America, but they are following up on the Build Back Better initiative because they know Republicans will take Parliament back in the 2022 interim period.
“Remember what the AOC shouted at me from the back of the room when I quoted a congressman[Abigail] Spanberger who said. “We did not choose Joe Biden to be FDR” to give us a new deal. “The AOC screamed, ‘I did. It’s the socialist wing of the Democratic Party that has taken over. Never before in American history has such a great bill been passed,” McCarthy said, referring to to rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Democratic Senator Jon Tester admitted there would be “changes” to Parliament’s version when it comes to the Senate, and warned his colleagues to be ready to “compromise.”
Tests of Montana were asked on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” whether the social spending package hoped to secure 50 Democratic votes in the Senate at any cost.
He said the House has a “great opportunity to do some good things” in offering childcare, combating climate change, lowering the cost of health care and prescription drugs, but members of the Senate must be “open to compromise.”
“And I think if we compromise, as we did in the two-part infrastructure package, where we had five Democrats and five Republicans arguing and fighting and coming up with a bill that would work, I think “It’s the same thing within the 50 Democrats. We do not all see the world in the same way,” he said in the show.
“So let’s negotiate and let’s come up with a bill that lowers the cost to families and lowers taxes and gets things done to help move this economy forward so we can remain the leading power in the world,” Tester added.
NBC’s Chuck Todd asked him if he was a supporter of the law without regard to detail.
“Oh no. No, no, no, no, no. It’s coming over from the house. There’s going to be some changes. I’ll compare it to what Montana needs, and that’s going to be where I focus. But look, “We are dealing with sensible people here. I think we can come up with a bill that is a very, very good bill that works for states like Montana and other states in the union,” he said.
The House passed the Build Back Better Plan on Friday with a 220-213 vote after months of controversial debate among Democrats over the provisions of the spending package and how it would be paid.
Its price tag has been the subject of a furious debate.
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimated the bill’s 10-year cost at $ 1.68 trillion, while Democrats have quoted a figure of $ 1.85 trillion.
But independent analysts have argued that the real price of the measure is closer to $ 5 trillion if temporary programs and tax deductions are extended to 2031.
The president proclaimed the plan at events by saying it would be paid in full by an increase in corporation tax and by increasing the IRS’s enforcement powers to go after tax penalties. ,
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire said “no one is buying it.”
In response to a question from CNN’s Dana Bash that Democrats have ways to compensate for the cost, Sununu said, “Yes, it’s called taxes.”
As governor, he said he has tried to keep taxes lower, though politicians in Washington continue to raise them.
But inflation, which is at its highest in 30 years, is also a tax on Americans.
“Inflation in itself is the worst tax you can put on low- and middle-income families across America because they have to buy a gallon of gas just as much as everyone else. And then this idea that this – we’re going to use $ 1.75 trillion, but believe us, it’s not going to cost you anything, nobody’s buying it, “Sununu told the State of the Union.
Brian Deese, director of the White House National Economic Council, said with assured House passage that the bill’s prospects in the Senate look promising.
It is a process and a process that we have been going through here for several months, working closely with and listening to members of both Parliament and the Senate. The milestone in Parliament was a big and important step in getting this bill implemented, and now we are moving to the Senate. And we will work with every member of the Senate on this bill, “Deese told Fox News Sunday.
He said the results of these negotiations have led to an understanding of how the legislation will affect American families – such as getting them back to work by passing childcare and extending the child tax deduction. ,
“We have broad agreement on these provisions. And so I expect that when we move to the Senate, we will have a lot of momentum, we will work, as the congressional process does, we will work to get a bill through the Senate. We need for 50 votes, and then it will go back to Parliament and to the President’s desk, “he said. ,
