Biden Counters GOP With $1.7 Trillion “Infrastructure” Bill, Which Is Even Worse

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Mr. Unity and Bipartisan doesn’t seem to understand how that works. Just because you’re talking with the opposition doesn’t mean you’re doing anything. But, then, he learned this from Obama

White House counters with $1.7 trillion infrastructure proposal in GOP talks

White House officials are presenting a $1.7 trillion counterproposal to Republicans on Friday in pursuit of a bipartisan deal on infrastructure, reducing the price tag of President Biden’s infrastructure proposal by $550 billion.

“In our view, this is the art of seeking common ground,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at a briefing Friday. “This proposal exhibits a willingness to come down in size, giving on some areas that are important to the president … while also staying firm in areas that are most vital to rebuilding our infrastructure and industries of the future.”

If Psaki is saying this, you know it’s pure trash.

The offer is still far above a price tag offered by Republicans and was received tepidly on Capitol Hill, suggesting a bipartisan compromise remains out of reach.

According to a three-page memo obtained by The Hill outlining the counterproposal, the White House is offering to reduce funding for broadband expansion to $65 billion to match a Republican offer spearheaded by Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.). The new measure also reduces proposed investments in roads, bridges and other major infrastructure projects from $159 billion to $120 billion, which is still more than double the $48 billion originally proposed by Republicans.

But all the other Left wing garbage was pretty much left in the bill, the stuff Biden and Dems call “infrastructure” that isn’t

Senate Republicans Trash Joe Biden’s $1.7 Infrastructure Counter, ‘Further Apart After Two Meetings with White House Staff’

Senate Republicans trashed President Joe Biden’s $1.7 infrastructure counter proposal late Friday, saying they are “further apart after two meetings with White House staff” than following one meeting with the president.

“Based on today’s meeting, the groups seem further apart after two meetings with White House staff than they were after one meeting with President Biden,” Fox News reported, based on a statement from Republican Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), John Barrasso (R-WY), Pat Toomey (R-PA), and Roger Wicker (R-MS).

“Senate Republicans will further review the details in today’s counteroffer and continue to engage in conversations with the administration,” the report concluded. (snip)

But there appears to be no budging from the White House on raising taxes. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy firmly stated they are not interested in altering the 2017 tax cuts, which the plan presumably still maintains.

So, wait, the second meeting didn’t even include Biden? Where was he? It’s not like he was doing anything else. He let Vice President Harris meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, which is starting to seem the norm, where Harris meets with world leaders while Joe is MIA. Per his announced schedule, he had all morning to be involved. He did the Medal Of Honor thing, then, disappeared again.
