Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton predicted Monday on “The View” that Democrats will achieve an agreement in the Senate on President Joe Biden’s agenda, but that legislation like the $3.5 trillion infrastructure plan is “overdue.”
“I believe they will reach an agreement,” Clinton remarked. “They need to go into the details, such as what would be included in that bill that would fit within their budget, and I believe they’ll be able to do so. But it will be a roller coaster ride, and it will not be pleasant.”
Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) are at odds with the rest of the Democratic caucus over Biden’s “Build Back Better Act,” a budget bill that would finance a variety of social programs.
“The law provides a lot of support for families that have been through so much and deserve to be supported.

“That gives me no joy in stating this because I believe we’re in the midst of a very serious, ongoing high-level attack on our government’s legitimacy and our president’s election. Our previous president is clearly not only behind it, but he instigated, encouraged, and continues to do so “In response to the Capitol insurgency on January 6, Clinton stated.
Trump’s reaction to the audience was documented in new research from ABC News’s Jonathan Karl’s book “Betrayal.” He brags about the size of the gathering and fights with advisers who want him to tell his followers to cease rioting.
The former New York senator told “The View” co-hosts that she believes Congress can work together on bipartisan legislation to regulate Facebook and children’s access to the social media platform.
“I’m hopeful that we can come up with proper rules and adjustments on a bipartisan basis to rein in this enormous power that a corporation like Facebook has in order to truly try to get the good that it has,” she continued.
A whistleblower told a Senate subcommittee last Tuesday that Facebook altered information it knew was detrimental to young users, only a day after the social media company had a seemingly unrelated major outage. She said that when Facebook executives discovered that their platforms may undermine foreign democracies and children’s mental health, they showed complete indifference. Her accusations have been refuted by Facebook.
