The comments made by the South Carolina-based politician come just after a month of the rule given by the House on the infrastructure bill. The said rule was voted upon by the members of the House. It was stated that the bipartisan bill that amounted to a total of 1 trillion USD was to be taken up by the 27th of September. This rule was a huge success for the moderates who were supporting the bipartisan bill over the economic package introduced by the Democratic leaders. The amount of the said economic package is 3.5 trillion USD. The main agenda of the package is to bring about an expansion in the country’s social safety net.
