Pocan Confident Budget Bills Will Get Done

The US Senate has passed a continuing resolution to prevent a full government shutdown, and give Democrats time to hammer out a pair of budget bills. Democrat Congressman Mark Pocan says he’s confident they can get it done.

“This is an important part of the president’s agenda. We know it’s important for our constituents, but along the way there’s some pretty strong opposition here in Washington from Big Pharma and the special interests that don’t want to pay their fair share for this bill.”

Pocan says Democrats are most of the way there on getting the support they need, but that there are a few holdouts that need convincing.
