Last week, Congress passed Biden's much-awaited infrastructure bill, coming up about $2 trillion short of the version that was originally proposed. In addition to repairing America's roads and bridges - something popular with voters - the original version also contained provisions such as subsidized childcare and higher education - which are also popular with voters.
Given so many items within the bill were popular on their own, why was the final version so trimmed down?
In August, The Factual ran a poll of its readership to gauge their sentiments of the original $3.5 trillion version. I invited Arjun Moorthy, Co-Founder and CEO of The Factual on this episode of YDHTY to discuss.
