Joe Biden’s two-prong approach to pass massive spending bills have been faced with hurdles. Earlier this week, Senate Budget Chair Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said the trillions of proposed dollars was not enough spending.

However, more spending could scare off moderate Democrats from supporting the packages. Currently, the bipartisan infrastructure proposal stands at $1.2 trillion, with more centrist Republicans on board.

While a second bill, the Democrats social spending bill to be passed around the filibuster through budget reconciliation, adds another three and a half trillion in spending. Appeasing moderates and big spenders at once, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) said on Saturday she was happy with both bills.

“If people get child care and they get paid leave, imagine how different life would look for anyone across the United States of America,” she expressed. “That is populist policy. It is popular policy.”

Both bills must get the support of every Democrat senator to reach Biden’s desk.
