After setback, U.S. House Democrats near deal on Biden agenda


Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives appeared to have forged a compromise between centrists and progressives on Tuesday that would enable them to advance key parts of President Joe Biden’s agenda.

Democratic lawmakers teed up an early-afternoon vote on Biden’s ambitious plan for trillions of dollars to expand child care and other social programs, one day after intraparty disagreements forced them to postpone an earlier vote.
