    Biden on the brink of a big legislative win as Dems close in on climate, health bill

    It’s been a successful week for President Biden after a U.S. drone strike killed al-Qaida's top leader, and with celebrations on the CHIPS and PACT acts and job numbers exceeding expectations and calming recession fears.
