Pelosi: House vote on Biden’s social-spending bill could occur as soon as today


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said her chamber was close to advancing Democrats’ social-spending and climate bill, saying a vote “hopefully will take place later this afternoon.” House Democrats have been expected to vote this week on the nearly $2 trillion Build Back Better Act that President Joe Biden has been promoting, while Republicans have continued to criticize the measure amid the highest inflation in three decades. A small group of moderate Democrats has demanded a Congressional Budget Office analysis of the bill before moving forward, and Pelosi said during a news conference that she expected “final CBO estimates later this afternoon, hopefully by five o’clock.”
