House passes 'cash for caulkers'

Rep Peter WelchPeter Francis WelchClinton mulls role in 2018 midterms Trump talks tough but little action seen on drug prices Frustrated with Trump, Dems introduce drug pricing bill MORE (D-Vt.), a chief sponsor of the bill, called the legislation a "hat trick" because it would create 168,000 jobs, while saving consumers $10 billion over 10 years and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Republicans largely opposed the bill and won support for a change to require the legislation not add to the deficit. Democrats will now have to find a way to pay for the bill for it to be implemented or else change the language in conference with the Senate.
