Behind the Poll:
On Tuesday, August 24, Democrats in the House approved $3.5 trillion of spending on a variety of social programs, which will increase the national debt to a record $29 trillion.
The week prior there had been speculation that Pelosi would not be able to get enough votes to approve the spending. But she was able to secure nine votes from moderate Democrats, which gave her a 220-212 vote in favor of the resolution.
According to Just The News, “The resolution authorizes $3.5 trillion in spending on new programs like universal pre-K, tuition free community college, support for child care, Medicaid expansion, legal status for certain categories of illegal immigrants and other provisions.”
