A group of ten US Senators - five Republicans and five Democrats - have announced an agreement for a bipartisan infrastructure Bill.
It will cost $1.2 Trillion over eight years. How are they going to pay for it? They want to use left over Rona money AND they want to index gas tax to inflation despite at the same time saying they won't raise taxes. I guess that's Washington's way of not raising taxes!
The senators in the group that reached the agreement are Democrats Joe Manchin, Jeanne Shaheen, Kyrsten Sinema, Jon Tester and Mark Warner, and Republicans Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman and Mitt Romney.
“Our group has worked in good faith and reached a bipartisan agreement on a realistic, compromise framework to modernize our nation’s infrastructure and energy technologies. This investment would be fully paid for and not include tax increases,” the lawmakers said in a statement.
According to Reuters "Schumer said work was still progressing on two tracks - one a bipartisan infrastructure bill and the other a measure that if brought to the floor, could pass with only Democratic votes through a maneuver called reconciliation that bypasses the rule requiring 60 votes for bills to advance."
What do you think? Do you support the $1.2 Trillion bipartisan infrastructure proposal?
