Republicans Ready to Block Infrastructure ‘Framework’ in Senate

Remember how I warned that the reconciliation bill Democrats were forcing through would put the bipartisan package in jeopardy?

Well, the ball has started to roll in that direction.

Senate Republicans announced that they would block the infrastructure framework for the bipartisan $1 trillion package that Dems and Republicans had presented to Joe Biden.

Senator Schumer (D-N.Y.) is trying to rush this vote through before he uses reconciliation to push through the larger package, and Senate Republicans are not having it.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), one of the authors of the bill, is among those pushing back.

On Tuesday, she stated, “There’s absolutely no reason why he asked to have the vote tomorrow, and it does not advance the ball.

“It does not achieve any goal except to alienate people.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) added, “We’re not going to the bill until we know what is in the bill.”

Schumer, as expected, is already blaming any failure on Republicans, stating, “There is no reason it should fail.

“The plan I have is very fair to the bipartisan process.

“We almost never wait for a complex bill like this for a full bill to be on the floor in order for it to be debated.”

Well, that is actually part of the problem, Chuckie. Far too many times things find their way into massive spending bills like this after the fact, and thank God Republicans are finally waking up to the fact that we need every detail specified before a vote takes place.

  1. I’m glad Republicans will Vote no on this. The Democrats have not been honest and playing games with our money.

  2. There is a provision in the bill for amnesty, has nothing to do with infrastructure, Democrats always push pork into the bills that should be a stand alone issue. Republicans better stop this fiasco, remember mid terms are a little over a year away. We the conservatives are watching you very closely.

  3. KEEP IN MINE THAT SOME TIMES THAT WORKING WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT VERY TRUTHFUL YOU CAN GET THE OLD GAME OF BAIT, (WHAT YOU THOUGH WAS OK AND YOU WOULD APPROVE IT), BUT THE PERSON YOU WERE DEALING WITH END UP SWITCHING ON YOU, THAT THE BAIT AND SWITCH CON, AND YOU JUST GOT IT. BUT THIS SWITCH DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING THE BOX.
