Biden pushes infrastructure, spending in Pennsylvania as Democrats near deal


U.S. President Joe Biden heads on Wednesday to his birthplace of Scranton, Pennsylvania as an agreement among Democrats on the scope of his social spending package appeared within reach.

Biden will deliver remarks at the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton, Pennsylvania, an election swing state, and talk about how his infrastructure plan will benefit the working class in cities like Scranton. His fellow Democrats in Washington are closing in on a deal to pass infrastructure and social spending measures after weeks of bickering.
