Joe Biden has clearly seen how difficult it will be for him to push agendas given the division in his own Democratic party who are torn between opinions as Republicans struggle in passing the bills.
In one of the most debated inclusion was $400 a week to jobless people in the country which was highly debated until the Democrats agreed to $300 a week.

The bill will however be taken to the House of Representative who will have their say and hopefully they wont raise their last week objection and different version.
