President Joe Biden has been diagnosed with a bad case of hyper-partisanship as the latest “revision” to his infrastructure bill contains barely any significant changes.
Biden has claimed that he wants to be a bipartisan president who works with both Republicans and Democrats, but he has completely failed so far.
While the Biden administration chopped $600 billion from the bill dropping the price tag down to $1.7 trillion, it’s a far cry from the $568 billion Republican infrastructure plans.
Furthermore, instead of slashing the extraneous parts of the bill that have nothing to do with infrastructure, Biden cut actual infrastructure funding. Funding for broadband internet, roads, and bridges were all cut back.
When asked if she supported bipartisan infrastructure legislation, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said, “Absolutely not. Because we might lose our coalition for human infrastructure. I do not think that the White House should relegate recovery to the judgment of Mitch McConnell because he will not function in good faith.”
Democrats can’t agree to the Republican’s cheaper plan because Republicans don’t include “human infrastructure,” which is code for Democrat wish-list items that have nothing to do with infrastructure. This latest event is yet another demonstration of Biden’s complete inability to be bipartisan and reasonable.
