Frustration on Capitol Hill over another vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill, as well as an agreement on a social spending package, is expected to dominate Sunday talk shows this week.
The Democratic leadership of the House of Representatives on Thursday abandoned a third attempt to pass the $ 1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that was approved by the Senate earlier this year.

Yet House progressives said once again that they would not vote for the bipartisan bill without guarantees of a broader social spending package that would pass through budget reconciliation.
Also Thursday, Biden presented a new proposal on a social spending package that would reduce the total cost of the bill to $ 1.75 trillion, half of the $ 3.5 trillion originally proposed.
The new proposal came after an exchange between the White House and moderate Democratic senators who disagreed both on the size of the bill and how Democrats proposed to pay for it.

Democratic House leadership advisers told The Hill that lawmakers are working to pass both bills on Tuesday.
The rush to pass the two bills comes as Virginians prepare for the state gubernatorial race on Tuesday, which recent polls show is a flop. A Washington Post-Schar School poll released Friday sent Democrat Terry McAuliffe up one point against Republican Glenn Youngkin.
McAuliffe will appear on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
