Democrats hit crucial stretch as filibuster fight looms

Democrats are hitting a crucial stretch as much of President Biden’s agenda remains stuck in congressional limbo.

Democrats have touted their progress under Biden’s first 100 days, where they passed a sweeping $1.9 trillion coronavirus bill, filled out the administration and inched the country back toward normalcy after a yearlong pandemic.

But it’s the next 100 days that they view as key for big priorities that will test the filibuster, and what if anything can get GOP support, as Democrats try to juggle trying to satisfy a base with a long wish list with razor-thin margins heading into 2022.
