Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) seems to be getting tired of President Joe Biden’s attempts to negotiate an infrastructure bill with Republicans.
When asked whether more time for negotiation was needed, Sanders said, “In general I don’t agree with that. The bottom line is the American people want results.”
He continued, “And frankly, when people got a, you know, $1,400 check or $5,600 check for their family, they didn’t say, ‘Oh, I can’t cash this check because it was done without any Republican votes.’”
It isn’t just Republicans who are unhappy with Biden’s $2.3 trillion proposal, however. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has said he wants a more traditional infrastructure plan focused on roads and bridges rather than child care credits and education.
Sanders has gotten his agenda through for most of Biden’s few months in office, but it seems that it has hit a wall at last.
