Democrats face mounting hurdles to agenda

Democrats are returning to Washington this week facing multiple political and policy headaches as they confront a packed agenda.

Congressional leaders have laid out a lengthy to-do list for the coming weeks as they barrel toward the 100-day mark for both President Biden and Democrats’ first unified government in a decade.

They’ll be racing against the clock: The House is in session for two weeks before lawmakers leave town again, and Congress faces a 15-day sprint next month leading up to the Memorial Day recess.
