Biden ends direct negotiations with GOP on infrastructure
President Biden has ended infrastructure negotiations with the GOP. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says Republicans’ latest offer doesn’t “meet the essential needs” of the country to fix roads and bridges, position the country for a reliant clean energy future, and create jobs.
She says Biden had reduced his plant by more than a trillion dollars and Republicans had increased theirs by only $150 Billion.
A bipartisan group of senators led by Mitt Romney has been working on an alternative offer as a backup and will be in touch with the president about it. Psaki says Biden will be in touch with members of the group while in Europe.
