White House National Economic Council Director Brian Deese said that proposals on clean energy, childcare and health care in President Joe Biden’s signature economic package are “doable” amid a stalemate over the bill in the Senate.

Deese, speaking in an interview with Bloomberg Television Thursday, was addressing what parts of the Build Back Better plan could get passed in Congress and help to address historically high inflation. Biden in a White House press conference Wednesday had said that the administration’s approach is now to “get as much as we can now and come back and fight for the rest later.
