Senate Democrats unveiled the framework for the $3.5 trillion proposed budget resolution, as a vote is expected later this week. Notably, the budget resolution text does not include language to lift the debt limit. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) predicted that no Republicans will vote for a resolution that will raise the debt ceiling. Senate Democrats plan to pass the $3.5 trillion resolution with no Republican votes.
The breakdown for each Senate committee is as follows:
Agriculture Committee: $135 billion.
Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs: $332 billion.
Commerce: $83 billion.
Energy and Natural Resources: $198 billion.
Environment and Public Works: $67 billion.
Finance: $1 billion for "debt reduction."
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP): $726 billion.
Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs: $37 billion.
Judiciary: $107 billion.
Indian Affairs: $20.5 billion.
Small Business: $25 billion.
Veterans Affairs: $18 billion.
The budget also includes a host of liberal wish-list items.
