Progressives have enough votes to tank infrastructure bill

United States House Progressive Caucus Chair, Representative Pramila Jayapal, (pictured) said that her group has the necessary votes to block the bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill.

On her way from a meeting that President Joe Biden participated in, the Democrat said that "dozens" of her members have refused to support the legislation unless Congress finalizes an agreement on a larger social spending package first.

"We do need the text and we do need the vote on both bills in the House at the same time," she noted.
