"Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday said a "room full of lawyers" is working to make the case that raising the minimum wage to $15 squares with Senate rules that threaten its inclusion in President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion relief package.

The comments come as Biden has cast doubt on the possibility of the wage increase being in the final bill, telling CBS in an interview that aired Friday that he doesn’t think "it’s going to survive."

Democrats are considering using a procedural shortcut known as budget reconciliation to pass the massive piece of legislation through Congress in the face of Republican opposition. While the minimum wage increase was included in Biden’s proposal, questions have swirled in recent days around whether it would be possible for lawmakers to use reconciliation to pass the package with it included. The procedural move is intended for bills concerning spending, taxes and debt.”
