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

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

Biden Brain SlugWhite 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.

    Did Mr Teach forget the $7.8 TRILLION in debt (39% increase) that the “King of Debt” piled on? And what do have to show for it? New schools? No. New roads? No. National broadband? No. Universal healthcare. No. But, richer rich people, a pandemic, a crashed economy, job losses – yes, yes, yes! He didn’t even have the excuse of invading a country for no good reason. It didn’t take the Green New Deal or Global Warming to bust the budget and crash the economy – the “King of Debt” did it on His own! And His worshipers want Him back!!

    Debt only matters when a Democrat is President. Republicans always find money for their true constituents, the wealthy and corporations, but never for the working class – you know, those people who do all the work. And why does the white working class still vote for the wealthy? You know why.

      Guess Rimjob, dipshit that he is, slept through the entire Trump administration.

      Apparently he hasn’t woke up yet since there is never any mention of the, uh, … “accomplishments” of the Short Bus junta.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

        William Teach loves rimjobbing and is a dipshit.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          And still no mention of the wonderful “accomplishments” of the Short Bus junta by Rimjob, dipshit that he is.

          Wonder why.

          Bwaha! Lolgf

    Why didnt Trump fix our roads and bridges instead of buding a half assed wall?

  3. Hairy says:

    Taxes are going up because that was already scheduled under Trumps plan
    Teach do you think those elites should pay more? I do

    • Jl says:

      John-then why don’t you pay for them? While you’re at it, throw in a carbon off-set tax or two.

    I remember when the government squirmed about a $ 1.7 billion infrastructure bill. They got used to saying trillion so now everything has to be trillion.

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    Infrastructure, yeah right…

    The WSJ‘s Kim Strassel highlights how passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act—a sweeping bill that would empower unions to force Americans into their ranks by nullifying all 27 state right-to work laws, strip companies of basic rights to make the case to employees against unionization campaigns, give the NLRB power to impose sweeping fines on supposed corporate labor violations, outlaw most independent contractors AND let unions bully workers into agreeing to unions via public “card check” pledges rather than secret ballots is the ONLY measure by which Big Labor will assess this Congress and the 46* Administration.

    Only problem is, Mark Warner, Gabby Gifford’s husband and Kyrsten Sinema haven’t signed on. And because the PRO Act, unlike so much of 46*’s uncontrolled spending agenda, is entirely about labor policy, it’s unlikely to meet the threshold for 51-vote “budget reconciliation” status, meaning proponents will need 60 highly-unlikely votes in the Senate to override a Republican filibuster, let alone a SCOTUS challenge to federal intrusion into the rights of states.

    Which explains 46*’s plan of trying to include it in “infrastructure” bill.

    Bwaha! Lolgf
