The $3.5T Reconciliation Bill Would Transform Energy, Medicare, Childcare, Education & More
On this edition of Your Call, we're discussing what’s in the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, which progressives say is their best opportunity to advance their legislative priorities.
Progressives say they won't vote for the infrastructure bill unless the reconciliation bill passes simultaneously. It includes measures to deal with the climate crisis and would expand Medicare to cover glasses, hearing aids and dental work. It would also provide free community college and pre-school for every 3 and 4-year old. What do you want to know about the details and the politics behind this massive bill?
