If you have been following the dreary ‘debate’ in the US congress about the infrastructure bill that progressive Democrats want to pass and Republicans and right-wing Democrats want to block, what is usually mentioned is the total figure of $3.5 trillion, though the fact that it is spread over ten years and thus much less scary is rarely spoken about.
Mehdi Hasan is fed up that people are not being told what is actually being proposed and he explains it in 60 seconds
We in the media have failed to explain to our viewers/readers what's *in* the Build Back Better reconciliation bill.
We just go on and on about $3.5 trillion.
So let me tell you what's in it, and why it matters, in just 60 seconds. Start the clock…pic.twitter.com/oysY9g1cQ1
