President Joe Biden has been touting a huge infrastructure plan that he feels can gain bipartisan support, but Republicans are saying not so fast.
On Tuesday, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell promised that he and other Republicans would stand against the plan. He even went as far as to say that the GOP would put up a “hell of a fight” to ensure the plan was not put in place.
But Biden and Democrats are adamant that the multi-trillion dollar plan is needed, and while it should be supported by all parties involved, they are willing to use reconciliation, which would override Republicans in the Senate and allow Biden’s plan to pass.
“There is a process by which they could pass this without a single Republican. But we’re going to make it hard for them,” McConnell explained while acknowledging the reconciliation process. “I don’t think we’ve had a bigger difference of opinion between the two parties,” he added.
