This week, we provide some background on the Congressional debate over President Biden’s domestic agenda.

Because of the internal debate within their party, Democratic leaders now realize their ambitious spending plans will have to be pared back.
Meanwhile, due to a variety of other issues, President Joe Biden has had a rough couple of months and his polls reflect that. One columnist wrote that, while Congressional Democrats are dithering, President Biden’s political support is “bleeding out into the low 40s.”
The first big test of political support is the Virginia gubernatorial race, to take place in two weeks on Tuesday, November 2. Against this backdrop, we take a look at issues of importance to our members and allies.
