The bill opens the way for the biggest expansion of federal social spending immediately exposed division among Democrats. The outline passed the Senate over unified Republican opposition, but translating it into law will require Biden and Democratic congressional leaders to keep their party’s moderate and progressive wings marching together. The Democrats position for the legislative package is to fund programs to provide aid to families, combat climate change and expand health care and education programs. The party also to incorporate terms that make community college tuition-free for two years and provide green cards to millions of immigrant workers and families, among other things On the other side, the Republican opposition believes that another multi-trillion-dollar spending bill could cause prices to rise, harming middle-income households. According to the Labor Department data.

The Democrats’ advocate that the $3.5 trillion is the minimum needed for health care, climate, and other programs to refurbish America’s roads, bridges, airports, and waterways, which are major priorities for Biden. The cuts for middle-class families would be offset by large increases on corporations, including raising the corporate tax rate and imposing a minimum tax on offshore business profits. Biden has proposed raising the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%, though this proposal has not been supported by all the Democrats.
