Even Democrat Senators are calling on Biden to remove the non-infrastructure from his “infrastructure” proposal.
Republicans proposed a bill that spends more on actual infrastructure like roads and bridges.
It’s time Biden stops standing in the way of bipartisan legislation.

McDaniel added, Republicans have proposed a bill that spends more money on actual infrastructure such as roads and bridges. She then said it’s time for the Democrats to stop standing in the way of bipartisan legislation.
This comes as moderate Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia recently indicated he would not support Biden’s infrastructure plan in its current form. He also called a $600 billion GOP proposal a “good starting point.”
WATCH: We can connect every West Virginian with broadband and finish critical Appalachian highways that have been promised for generations. Yesterday I urged the administration to prioritize these infrastructure investments. We can’t afford to wait any longer. pic.twitter.com/xoT6paht8A
