Far-Left Senators Fuming After Biden Announces He Struck Deal On Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan

Democrats expressed opposition to Biden’s infrastructure plan, revealing reluctance to support the move unless they can push another bill through, according to The Western Journal.

“There is not going to be a bipartisan agreement without a major reconciliation package,” Bernie Sanders stated.”

“I think there is, like I said, 20 votes for this,” Sanders stated.

“I can find you a lot of other things that there are 20 votes for.”

“I think there is, like I said, 20 votes for this,” Sanders continued.

“I can find you a lot of other things that there are 20 votes for.”

“To answer the direct question: We have a deal.”

“They have my word. I’ll stick with what we’ve proposed, and they’ve given me their word as well,” Biden stated.

“None of us got all that we wanted.”

“I didn’t get all that I wanted. But this reminds me of the days we used to get an awful lot done up in the United States Congress.”

“My party is divided. But my party’s also rational,” Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy said.

“If they can’t get every single thing they want, but all that they have in the bill before them is good, are they going to vote ‘no’? I don’t think so.”

From The Western Journal:

The outlet reported the agreement includes $559 billion in new spending, reaching a total of $1.2 trillion over eight years.

Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders pushed back on the deal and said it wouldn’t move past the legislature unless there is a “firm, absolute agreement” on a reconciliation bill.

The $6 trillion reconciliation package being considered by Democrats could quickly advance key elements of Biden’s infrastructure plan without support from Republicans, The Washington Post reported.

The move would give Democrats the opportunity to move their controversial spending packages through the Senate with 51 votes instead of 60.

Specifically, The Post reported Democrats want to adopt Biden’s $2.2 trillion American Jobs Plan and $1.9 trillion American Families Plan that were left out of the Senate’s bipartisan infrastructure deal.

Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut also said he would not vote for the bipartisan package “unless I know what is in reconciliation.”

Biden met with the group of 10 senators, five from each party, on Thursday to endorse the scaled-down infrastructure package.
