President Biden had a message to Senate Minority Chairman Mitch McConnell about the infrastructure, that he must negotiate in good faith and that obstacles will not be tolerated.

Democrats, Republicans will have ideas about what they like and don’t like about our plan. That is a good thing. This is the American way. This is how democracy works. Debate is welcome. Compromises are inevitable. Changes are safe. Over the next few weeks, the Vice President and I will meet with Republicans and Democrats to hear from everyone. I will listen and be open to good ideas and negotiating in good faith, but here is what we will not be open to. We’re not going to be open to doing nothing. Inaction is just not an option.
Since announcing this plan, I’ve heard from my Republican friends that it is too big. They say: why not focus on traditional infrastructure? Correct what we already have. Roads and highways that already exist and the bridges. I am happy to have this debate. But let me give you my opinion. We are America. We’re not just repairing for today. We build for tomorrow.
President Biden will waste no time in false negotiations that Republicans take on with bad faith. Biden urges Republicans to negotiate in good faith or they will be left behind.
Joe Biden is working on a massive infrastructure bill, and he’s not being blocked by fake Republican negotiations.
Knowing all of Mitch McConnell’s tricks, President Biden has become the Senate minority leader’s worst nightmare for not falling into his traps.
