What's at Stake in Biden's Build Back Better Act?
Two senators are holding up Biden's Build Back Better Act — a megabill that could change the lives of millions of Americans with provisions on climate and social welfare. But those stakes seem to have gotten lost in the political coverage, which is more taken with the narrative of "Democrats in disarray," where so-called "moderates" fight progressives in the party. According to Andrew Prokop, Senior Politics Correspondent at Vox, Biden's Build Back Better Act (also known as his reconciliation bill), is a really big deal. This week, Brooke asks Prokop to compare the coverage of the Build Back Better Act to Obamacare, and to explain what's actually in the enormous proposed bill — from the expanded child tax credit, to promising measures on climate.
