• President Joe Biden has made last minute plans to attend a House Democratic caucus meeting on Thursday morning, CNBC confirmed late Wednesday.
  • There, Biden is expected to personally appeal to the party's progressives to vote for the stalled infrastructure bill, which has already passed the Senate.
  • Biden's attendance was seen on Capitol Hill as a very good sign that party leaders had finalized a deal on his signature legislation.

WASHINGTON — As Democratic committee chairs and their aides took up the task Wednesday of writing legislation to enact President Joe Biden's signature social spending bill, internal divisions over Medicare expansion and paid family leave were among the last remaining hurdles to a final deal, lawmakers said.

Late Wednesday night, CNBC confirmed that Biden is expected to attend a House Democratic caucus meeting Thursday morning, scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. ET. The last minute addition to the president's schedule was first reported by CNN.
