12:10 pm
spending bill. in our nation's history. the vote was originally scheduled for thursday night after the congressional budget office released its cost estimate, saying the legislation would add almost $400 billion to the nation's debt over 10 years. but democrats dispute that given the bill also brings in more than a trillion dollars in new revenue by most estimates. this bill reduces the deficit while the cbo score convinced some moderate holdouts to vote for the bill, senators joe manchin and kirsten cinema remain unconvinced their votes necessary for democrats to pass in the divided senate. senate majority leader chuck schumer said he'd like to vote before christmas. senators are expected to make changes to the house bill. which means the house would then need to vote on the amended version in washington, carolina, lively ktvu, fox two news. and we spoke with south by democratic congressman ro khann. shortly after this morning's vote, the progressive caucus members said. the framework that passed the house whatever big

12:13 pm
12:14 pm
accusing kaiser of not doing enough for its staff and patients. the hospital says the strikes are just a bargaining
12:15 pm
tactic. ktvu james taurus shows us what workers are saying from san francisco. the people behind me are here for two different reasons. one standing in solidarity for hospital engineers who have been in negotiations with kaiser for more than two months and second demand better resources for mental health care from the kaiser permanente medical center in san francisco concert. hard to see a group of upset medical workers. demand change. you kno, a lot of my patients even you know, told me that they support me because they want more care. they want to be taken care of. most of these workers are in the mental health field. during labor union negotiations. these people say kaiser permanente is rejecting proposals to enhance patient care. we are lacking enough staff to allow patients to have frequent enough
12:16 pm
appointments so that the treatment will be effective. many patients have to wait eight weeks between their therapy appointments. there is no school of therapy that is effective at eight week intervals when you wait three months and you're severely depressed. what are you going to say about that person is likely to find a solution to their suffering in ways that are very dangerous and unsafe. um that might look like suicide or substance use talks don't seem to be in a place to end soon. a spokesperson for the medical center put out a statement this morning responding to the group of mental health care workers. saying the strike has nothing to do with patients. but with money quote this strike is a bargaining tactic this union has used every time it is bargaining for a new contract with kaiser permanente over the past 11 years of its existence. it is especially disappointing that they are asking are dedicated and compassionate employees to walk away from their patients
12:17 pm
when they need us. most workers here say kaiser is putting profit over patients and has the power to end any plan strikes immediately. you know, it makes me angry. because i feel like every single day they abdicate their responsibility to their patients. um and so i think they have a lot of nerve to suggest that it's a short term sacrific, but we believe that the long term goal is morally and ethically worth it, a labor group representing hospital engineers. has been negotiating for about nine weeks. kaiser says they've gone nowhere despite long talks, saying the group is asking for too much. we're in bargaining with some unions and have proposed no takeaways, an annual increases, which will keep our valued staff among the highest paid in the country. people here say they are striking for those workers to we think it's really important that kaiser pay its people what they're worth so that they can stay and work at kaiser in san francisco. i'm james torres. ktvu fox two news.
