"Congresswoman Ilhan Omar said Tuesday that Democratic lawmakers in the House’s nearly 100-member Progressive Caucus are prepared to withhold their votes from the White House-backed bipartisan infrastructure deal in order to guarantee the concurrent passage of a separate bill that invests in climate action, child care, and other priorities.
Speaking to Politico, Omar—the whip for the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC)—said a recent internal poll of the members showed that 60% of respondents would be willing to withhold their votes to secure a reconciliation bill. The Minnesota Democrat noted that 80% of the caucus responded to the survey, meaning that more than 40 CPC members are prepared to stand in the way of a bipartisan infrastructure measure if it is not accompanied by a more ambitious bill."
