Groundhog Day

10 GOP senators back bipartisan infrastructure plan, boosting its chances of moving forward

  • Ten Republican senators now support a bipartisan infrastructure framework, which would give a bill enough votes to pass the Senate if all Democrats get on board.
  • Several liberal senators have signaled they could oppose the bipartisan plan, saying it does not go far enough to fight climate change or income inequality.
  • Democrats are deciding whether to abandon bipartisan talks to pass a bill on their own, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Budget Committee would start to set the groundwork to do so as bipartisan talks proceed.
  • President Joe Biden said he has not seen the bipartisan plan.

    We thought that Biden had this figured out after the COVID relief act.
    “He learned from the Obama era” they all crowed.
    But now he’s going back to “If it ain’t bi-partisan it ain’t shit!”
    The good news I heard is that they aren’t waiting, they are working on how to do reconciliation on the infrastructure bill right now.
    What we are losing is the sense of urgency. Trying to drag along the GOP of 2021 is different that the GOP of 1971, 1981, 19991, 2001 or 2011.

      Yeah, Spocko, I saw this morning that the White House told Schumer to get the reconciliation process started.

      Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell will curb stomp this at the last moment.

    I feel like Charlie Brown, and the do-nothing-dems Lucy: every time I give ’em the benefit of the doubt they give me reason for kicking myself in the ass for giving them the benefit of the doubt. I don’t think they want to get anything done, anything fundamentally changed. They enjoy the deadlock as much as the retards ~ ew, look’it me, I’m on teevee, heaven for bid they actually do something.

    If this doesn’t turn around quick I’ll be writing in Mickey Mouse again … next year.

    I understand why some people do some of the things they do …

    Some Democrats have suggested their party could approve a physical infrastructure plan with Republican support if skeptics get assurances their priorities will be addressed later.

    Are those unnamed democrats Manchin and Sinema?

    Victories are for losers, apparently. Never take “yes” for an answer if you can still can another TV appearance.
