Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is ready to carry a press conference Friday on Democrats’ marquee laws to tackle tax reform, health care and climate change.
Schumer will speak after he unified the Democratic caucus across the bill by cutting a take care of centrist Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., a key holdout.
The bill, dubbed the Inflation Reduction Act, was revealed late last month by Schumer and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., one other centrist who had sunk Democrats’ prior efforts to pass a sweeping package to overhaul the post-pandemic economy.
The reconciliation bill is ready to proceed through the Senate this weekend. Democrats hope to pass it without having any Republican support within the chamber, which is split 50-50 between the parties and where Vice President Kamala Harris holds the tie-breaking vote.
