1:03 am

1:04 am
a statement to all the security council members. all of them though, must agree before it is issued. our president joe biden has traveled to capitol hill to meet with members of his democratic party in an attempt to save his economic agenda divisions among the democrats threatened biden's plans with progressive members line to block a trillion dollar infrastructure bill. if a larger social spending and climate change bill is not agreed, you as president rally, visit capitol hill preferring instead to salmon lawmakers to the white house for discussions. rosalind jordan joins us from washington and so and tell us is the president still there? now the president was a only in the meeting with congressional democrats for about 40 minutes by every once estimation. and after the meeting was done, he said very briefly to reporters, basically that he was still confident this could be done. but that it could take 6

minutes, 6 days, perhaps 6 weeks, indicating that there is no imminent deal on getting these 2 pieces. a very expensive legislation passed. there is an impass progressives, the more liberal law members of the democratic caucus on capitol hill. want to see a guarantee that the $3.00 trillion dollars that the president has proposed to spend on social programs. everything from health care to education, to child care, as well as spending on the environment promoting environmental initiatives. they want a guarantee that that legislation will be passed if there is any expectation that they're going to vote for the other expensive piece of legislation, which is the infrastructure bill. we're talking roads, highways, bridges, of electrical, grid, telecommunications and networks. all of that money. they don't want to vote for
1:06 am
that measure, which is already been passed by the u. s. senate until they know that they're going to get the spending that they say that their constituents want to see past it. that's why they were sent to washington. the more conservative members of the democratic party are saying, well, we've got to be careful on how much money we're spending, which is why they have not been willing to go along with passing this a large social services and environmental law bill. and that's where the political log jam is now, the president. yes, he has all this power. he is considered the most powerful politician in the world. but the u. s. congress is a separate branch of government, and all he can do as joe biden to apparently did on friday afternoon, is to could try to cajole the more conservative and the more liberal members of his political party to try to work together in order to get both pieces of legislation done, and one member of congress told one of the u. s. networks that it may not be
1:07 am
a matter of how much money they get to sped. it's rather what things are they going to spend the money on, and then figure out the price tag. and that might be the way to break this up. political log jam, willy, really within the democratic party, for their part. the republicans are staying out of it because if they don't do anything else, they're incredibly good at holding their, their troops together and speaking with one voice. and there's the truism. if your opponent is milking things up, don't get in that opponents way. let them, maggie, a mess of things themselves. all right, thank you. from washington. rosalind jordan ah, residence in a small colombian town, st influx of mostly haitian migrants is pushing them out of housing,
