House Set For Debate, Passage Of Build Back Better In Thursday Night Session

Update (2000ET): The House of Representatives is set to debate and then vote on President Biden’s $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act tonight, just hours after the Congressional Budget Office found that it will add more than $350 billion to the budget deficit – a determination which contradicts the White House’s longstanding claim that the bill is ‘paid for.’

The CBO found that the draft legislation contains $1.636 trillion in spending, and $1.269 trillion in revenue over 10 years, adding $367 billion to the US deficit over that period.
