We will see what happens.
I’m somewhat surprised that the Republican Senate is going along with this. After all, they thwarted Trump’s MAGA agenda and hurt themselves politically in the process when they controlled the House and Senate. Now, they are going to let Joe Biden get credit for passing an infrastructure bill?
“President Biden announced Thursday that he had agreed to a roughly $1 trillion infrastructure plan with a bipartisan group of ten senators, declaring: “We have a deal.”
What we’re hearing: The White House is planning to hold a ceremony at the White House this afternoon regarding the infrastructure deal, three sources familiar with the meeting tell Axios.
Details: The deal will cost $1.2 trillion over eight years, or $974 billion over five years and offers more than $550 billion in new spending. …”
Why is a basic infrastructure bill even controversial, anyway? What are the details of this?
“President Joe Biden on Thursday endorsed the bipartisan infrastructure framework clinched by 10 senators, appearing alongside them at the White House to declare “we have a deal.”
The Senate’s nascent infrastructure deal faced a crucial test as its negotiators met with the president to discuss a framework that’s won the endorsement of 21 senators in both parties. Several of those senators and administration officials reached a breakthrough Wednesday evening that raises the prospects of a successful agreement on a nearly $1 trillion infrastructure bill. …”
Anyway, I don’t care.
I’m not a Republican!
If we get the COVID relief bill and a decent infrastructure bill out of the Joe Biden presidency, but nothing else passes the Senate, that’s the best possible scenario.
Note: I don’t see anything else passing after HR 1 and the January 6th commission went down in flames.
