President Biden revised his ‘Build Back Better’ platform Thursday to appease moderate Democrats, dropping the price tag to a still-staggering $1.75 trillion as some progressives claim the amount doesn’t go far enough.

Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., said Thursday that her caucus backs President Biden’s proposed reconciliation framework, despite the fact at least a few members have expressed concerns about it,” Fox News’ Caroline McKee reports.

“Everyone in the room and through enthusiastically endorsed a resolution that approves in, in principle, the framework that the president laid out today,” she said.

“We are excited about the progress that has been made. We look forward to even working, you know, throughout the weekend to get the two pieces of legislation done,” Rep. Ilhan Omar added.

“We still remain in the same position we were before,” she said. “[Progressives] need to see legislation and they need to see that passed.”

“After months of productive, good-faith negotiations with President Biden and the White House, we have made significant progress on the proposed budget reconciliation package. I look forward to getting this done, expanding economic opportunities and helping everyday families get ahead,” concluded Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.

Senator Bernie Sanders pushed his $3.5 trillion budget on social media Monday morning; saying the massive spending package is needed to help “working class, elderly, children, sick, and poor” Americans.

“The $3.5 trillion Budget Resolution that I am introducing today will allow the Senate to move forward on a reconciliation bill that will be the most consequential piece of legislation for working people, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor since FDR and the New Deal,” posted the self-described Democratic Socialist.

 

“For too long, Congress has ignored the needs of the working class, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor. Now is the time for bold action. Now is the time to restore faith in ordinary Americans that their government can work for them, and not the top 1%,” he added.

“At a time of massive income and wealth inequality, we will end the days of billionaires and large, profitable corporations not paying a nickel in federal income taxes. Yes. We will finally ask the very wealthy and largest corporations to pay their fair share of taxes,” concluded the Senator.

President Biden pushed his massive $3.5 trillion spending package this week as the proposal stalls in Congress, claiming the bill will “save the planet” and “reduce inflation.”

“Create industries of the future, to win the future, to save the planet. We can do this. This is the United States of America… Never have we failed to meet an objective we set. What’s happening now, is that we’ve set a goal. The goal is achievable,” said Biden.

“I promise you it’s going to create great economic growth, reduce inflation, and put people in a place where people will never have to worry about what we’re worrying about right now,” he added.

 

President Biden’s approval rating dropped to new lows this week over a series of self-inflicted crises impacting the country, including the southern border, Afghanistan, inflation, slow job growth, and his handling of the pandemic.

President Biden’s approval rating dropped to 43 percent amid the fallout of the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday,” writes NPR.

The new statistic is a six point decrease from a poll conducted in August.

“Thirty-six percent of independents approve of the job Biden is doing, compared to 55 percent who disapprove. Meanwhile, 85 percent of Democrats approve of Biden’s job handling, compared to 13 percent who disapprove,” adds the outlet.
