Apparently, President Joe Biden made a big boo-boo when he said he wouldn’t sign a bipartisan infrastructure bill unless he got another one through budget reconciliation that had all the stuff in it that the first one didn’t have.
His office tried to walk back his remarks about vetoing the bill, and the remarks were in conflict with a confirmed conversation he had with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) on Friday, where he said he would sign the bill if it is passed.
A read out of the call with Sinema did not mention a veto of the bill or a demand for a second bill.
Biden has not clarified the remarks so far, and Republicans and Democrats are still confused as to what will happen to infrastructure if the bipartisan deal passes.
