U.S: Senate approves healthcare, tax, and climate change bill

The US Senate has approved a sweeping $700 billion economic package that includes major legislation on healthcare, tax, and climate change.

The bill seeks to lower the cost of some medicines, increase corporate taxes and reduce carbon emissions.

The passing of the bill—a flagship part of President Joe Biden's agenda—is a boost ahead of mid-term elections.

But it is a significantly scaled-back version of the 3.5 trillion dollar package that was first proposed by his administration.
