'We will own the future' -Biden on spending plan

"Today I’m pleased to announce after months of tough and thoughtful negotiations, I think we have, I know we have a historic economic framework," that will create millions of jobs and allow the United States to compete with China and other countries, Biden said after a last-minute trip to Congress to get reluctant progressives to support his spending plan.

In a meeting with Democrats in the House of Representatives, Biden pleaded for their support, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The framework includes $555 billion in spending for climate initiatives, and six years of preschool funding, among other top agenda items, but does not include paid family leave or a tax on billionaires.
