Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that consensus on such an issue the $1.75 trillion social spending plan could continue, even though it remains stuck in Congress despite its initial value decline.

Even Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, who helped tank the party’s original plan to allow Medicare to negotiate the prices of certain drugs, affirmed her support for the new deal.

Reaching up this prescription drug price deal, Congress Democrats are closer to voting on Biden´s social spending plan.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi forecast that the Democratic Party could solve its thorniest disputes “at the end of the day,” the NBC News reported. There are still other pending obstacles, though.
