What’s Happening in Washington, DC
by Liz Powell, Esq., MPH, G2G Founder
September is proving to be the most stressful month of the new Biden Administration. Not only was pulling out of Afghanistan full of chaos and lost lives, but a government shutdown could occur October 1, debt ceiling extension is required by mid-October, appropriations bills are stalled, and efforts to move historic legislation that would reshape the American economy over the next 10 years hit major hurdles in Congress. The sweeping 10-year $3.5 trillion spending plan marks a significant step in Democrats’ drive to expand education, health care and childcare support, tackle the climate crisis and make further investments in infrastructure. But it is also raising major concerns among moderates in both chambers who worry some of the measures, including on drug pricing and climate, go too far and could result in Congress switching to Republican control in the next election.
