GOP senators say bipartisan group has infrastructure deal
By Alexander Bolton - 06/10/21 01:30 PM EDT

Republican senators who are negotiating within a bipartisan group of 10 senators say they have reached a tentative deal on the size of an infrastructure package and how to pay for it.

The emerging deal would spend only a fraction of the $4.1 trillion investment President Biden has called for and would not raise taxes, which could make it a tough sell within the broader Senate Democratic caucus.

Members of the bipartisan group cautioned Thursday that the tentative deal still needs to be presented to the Senate Republican conference and the White House to see if there’s broader buy-in.

“We have a tentative agreement on the pay-fors, yes, but that’s among the five Democrats and the five Republicans. It has not been taken to our respective caucuses or the White House so we’re in the middle of the process. We’re not at the end of the process, not at the beginning but we’re in the middle,” said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), a member of the group.

Romney said there’s also a tentative agreement to the overall top-line spending number.

“I believe it’s complete but others may have a different point of view,” he said.

The Rats' favorite RINOs, in no particular order:


The other 2 are not named in this shitty Hill article.  CNN also fingered Portman, while the other communist insists on anonymity.

Mittens is behind it.

There won't be nothing left in the shop when he's done.

An 'infrastructure" bill should not have a "top number" of money to spend.

An infrastructure bill should first identify those areas of infrastructure that need improvement or new construction.  Identify the areas that need fixing.  Congress should then request bids to perform the jobs and determine how much the needed work will cost.

THEN they start discussing how much they're going to and what jobs can be done with that money.

Oh, and before that, they first need to identify which jobs are part of the federal purview and which belong to the states.  The states are supposed to cover their own asses.

ANY bill, for ANYTHING, that starts with "I've got a thousand billion dollars to spend, anyone got any ideas what I can spend it on" is guaranteed to be a bad bill.

Oh, and ANY bill Romney supports is a bad bill.

The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.
