One side is energized by the prospect of the greatest expansion of government support since the New Deal nearly a century ago. The other is fearful about dramatically expanding Washington’s reach at an enormous cost. They are all Democrats, yet are taking vastly different approaches to the the massive $3.5 trillion spending bill moving through Congress. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
