Democrats are staring down a nightmare September, a month jam-packed with deadlines and bruising fights over their top priorities.That leaves Democrats little time to finalize a massive $3.5 trillion spending package before key deadlines set by leadership in both chambers.Outside groups are also urging activists and progressive lawmakers to steel themselves for a heated fight with their own party over the $3.5 trillion package.Democrats will have to accept sole responsibility for facilitating it.”Democrats could raise the debt ceiling on their own as part of the $3.5 trillion spending package.Democrats are hoping that they’ll have a voting rights bill ready by the time they return that could unite all 50 Democrats.
