Contributing sentiments towards policy:

56% : The bill, primarily negotiated by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin III, would dedicate $370 billion to clean energy programs, including electric vehicle tax credits and tax incentives for energy companies to produce renewable energy.
53% :The bill would also boost funding for a federal trust fund that helps coal miners diagnosed with black lung pay for their health care if the company they worked for doesn't do so.
53% :Virginia Democratic Rep. Bobby Scott lauded the provision during floor debate, saying that "extending the tax will protect the long-term sustainability of the black lung disability trust fund, while ensuring that the coal industry does not shift the cost of benefits from coal companies to miners, families, or the taxpayer."
52% : It would extend subsidies for three years for individuals who purchase health insurance as part of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, to stave off a price hike that was expected to begin at the end of the year.
50% : It would provide $1.5 billion to the Environmental Protection Agency to help companies reduce methane, a greenhouse gas, and would impose a fee on companies for certain methane emissions.
49% : "This is a giant step forward, but we will continue to work to overcome the Republican opposition that blocked extending the same life-saving measures to those on private insurance."
48% : "It is fiscally responsible and is targeted on four key priorities: reducing the national debt and putting our country back on a fiscally responsible path, lowering the cost of prescription drugs and making health care more affordable, investing in an all-of-the-above energy strategy to significantly increase oil, gas, and renewable energy production to lower energy costs for Americans, and cracking down on the tax avoidance of billion-dollar multinational corporations," Golden said in the statement.
47% : The measure would cap the cost of insulin for Medicare recipients at $35, but wouldn't apply a similar cap on co-pays for people with private health insurance after Republicans in the U.S. Senate successfully blocked that provision.
35% : And the GOP tried to use it to repeal and replace Obamacare the same year, but didn't have the votes in the Senate to pass their proposal.
30% : "It seems to me that Republicans just don't want people to pay taxes, even if they're owed," Yarmuth said, noting that hundreds of billions of dollars in owed taxes go unpaid every year.
