Centrist Democrats secured some top legislative demands. And House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy won plaudits from conservatives for a lengthy floor speech that delayed passage of the Build Back Better Act. From a political perspective, all sides had something to crow about after Friday’s largely party-line vote on the $1.7 trillion spending package. For Democrats, tensions between progressives and moderates subsided after months of infighting over policy and procedural differences relating to the safety net and infrastructure bills. Progressive fears that a faction of centrists, led by Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J., was scheming to sink the Build Back Better legislation proved unfounded. Liberals for months prevented passage of the $550 billion infrastructure bill to use as leverage before eventually relenting two weeks ago, when the House passed the bipartisan measure. Centrists in turn voted for the larger bill shortly after they received the cost estimate they wanted from the Congressional Budget Office. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/build-back-better-vote-eases-democratic-tensions-raises-mccarthy-s-n1284234 Follow Kyle on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/kylekulinski #KyleKulinski #SecularTalk
