What's in and what's out of the Biden framework
President Biden is pitching a $1.75 trillion social spending and climate plan to Democrats that has been heavily slimmed down after concessions to moderate senators.
It’s still a huge bill, but it’s just half the size of the $3.5 trillion package envisioned in the Democrats’ budget resolution.
But here’s a look at what is in and out of the framework, which still must be turned into legislative text and is not a done deal.
Expansion of health care coverage
The bill would reduce premiums for over 9 million Americans by an average of $600 per person annually, a senior administration official said.
It expands coverage to the poor by offering four years of subsidized private health insurance on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) exchanges for people with lower incomes living in states that did not expand Medicaid under the health care law.
