Biden Says China Won't Become Most Powerful on His Watch

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the chamber will move quickly to address U.S. competitiveness with China as he laid out an ambitious schedule that also includes voting rights, gun control and President Joe Biden’s plan for a massive economic investment package.

With the exception of the China package, much of the agenda Schumer laid out Thursday ahead of a congressional break faces opposition from Republicans and could push the two parties toward a potentially epic clash over the Senate’s filibuster rule, which requires 60 votes to advance most legislation.
