WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday said he thinks he has enough lawmakers on board to pass his Build Back Better agenda, including progressive Democrats who have been pushing for a broader spending measure.

Asked if he had enough of a framework deal to win over the progressive members of the Democratic caucus and pass his legislative plan, he told reporters at the U.S. Capitol: "Yes."

"Everyone's on board," he added.
