There is plenty of drama on Capitol Hill these days, as congressional Democrats work to dial in an enormous $3.5 trillion Budget Reconciliation bill formally titled the “Build Back Better Agenda.” The bill includes ambitious investments in social care, climate health, retirement security, and health care while seeking to pay for the boost in government spending with tax increases on corporations and wealthier taxpayers.  

The House Ways and Means Committee recently shared the details of the “social infrastructure” provisions within this package, and they include historic changes to both paid family medical leave and our private retirement savings system, as well as tax-raising provisions.
