Senators say they have finally reached an agreement on “major issues” regarding the infrastructure bill. After bipartisan infrastructure talks, Republican senators have reportedly resolved remaining discrepancies in the bill and are set to begin debate as early as tonight according to Senate Majority Leader Schumer.

The Hill reports:

“We now have an agreement on the major issues. We are prepared to move forward,” said Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who led the negotiations for the Republicans.

Speaking to reporters with the five GOP negotiators after a meeting with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Portman touted the deal and described McConnell as being open to it.

The move is a sharp turnaround after talks stalled on Monday and Republicans blocked the vote to begin debate last week after Schumer attempted to rush the process along. Democrat John Tester, who was involved in the bipartisan negotiations also said Republicans had reached an agreement.

The signs of growing momentum come after President Biden and the bipartisan group announced late last month that they had reached a deal on a framework that would cost $1.2 trillion over eight years.

But since then they’ve struggled to look down the details and how to pay for the agreement. And their fight erupted into public on Monday, as Republicans balked at a “global” offer made by the White House and Schumer.

Schumer and other Democrats have indicated if the group of bipartisan senators reaches an agreement then they are prepared to work through the weekend.

Schumer will need support from 10 Republican senators along with all 50 Democrats to begin debate on the infrastructure bill.



  1. Communism is coming for you. Get ready.

    HINT: If you want to know what that looks like take a close look at Cuba and Venezuela.

    1. yeah, and the idiots are cheering!! People are getting blinder, and stupider by the minute! I wish that all the demos would move to Venezuela or Cuba. A one way trip, of course!

      1. Yeah, and I wish that Texas would secede and all us conservatives could move there. It is large enough to be a country plus has everything needed including energy (oil).

  2. Screw You Right side beuroghcrats going Along with the left We Are Your Bosses The Public Wetell You What To Do Not You Tell Us What to do Get Out of D.C.Communist Lovers And out of politics.

    1. 2nd Timothy 3, But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, unforgiving without love, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God….

  4. Oh, my poor country! Some of the Republicans are just as shameful. How can they spend money we do not have? My beloved country, one which my son, father, grandfather, and great grandfather fought for is becoming a nanny state. I’m sick to my stomach.

  5. America has to be taken out of the way, no longer a Super Power, for the One World Government to accomplish its goals, and then they will go after Israel….. (Rosh,) Russia will be the leader of the armies that invade Israel for her wealth and natural resources. Ezekiel 38 and 39, the War of Gog and Magog. All players of the puzzle are aligning right now.

    1. There are 7 prophecies about Israel in the Bible. Five of them have already happened. Four of them in the last 100 years. The last 2? 6. Nations will rise against Israel. 7. God will destroy all nations that rise against Israel. In Luke Jesus says there will be strange things in the sky. About a week after I read that they were discussing UFOs being real on TV.

  6. Go join your democrat friends if you must but don’t ever ask me to donate to you again
    Useless people like you is how the evil socialist have had so much succeed Your a weak useless bunch of liars.

  7. SHAME ON THE REPUBLICANS!!!!!!!! YOU NEED TO THINK CAREFULLY……..ELECTION 2022 IS COMING!!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NOTHING THAT THE DEMS/FRAUDS COME UP WITH THAT IS ANY BENEFIT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!! ALSO, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME ANY DEM/FRAUD COULD BE TRUSTED???????? HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO GET BURNED TO SEE THIS?????????

  8. Just remember….. Every so-called Republican that votes for this sham is in cahoots with the dems and the globalists! They will easily get their 10 rino Republicans to vote in loch step with the democommies!

  9. Every TRUE American wonders just how some backbone is going to be put into Senate Republicans. Don’t they know that blocking EVERYTHING that Joe Biden and the far-left socialist Democrat Party stands for is what Americans want, and what America needs – desperately!

  10. What’s the urgency? Republicans must have made a secret deal, there’s no way the total cost will not rise before they’re done. Hundreds of billions used to cause inflation. What will yet ANOTHER Trillion do?

  11. THE GOVT HAS NO MONEY, IT ONLY HAS YOUR MONEY !

    The Republicans should be working on returning as much of our money as possible.

    DOUBLE TAX THE COMMIECRATS IF THEY WANT MORE !

  12. Does the infrastructure bill still include that insert for unconditional Amnesty for all illegal Aliens? They really seem to be in a rush to get it passed before this weekend

  13. With over a Million Illegal Alien Invaders in less than 7 Months of China Joe’s Administration—-I just don’t know if America’s Middle Class can stand much more forthcoming from the Marxist led democrat rats.

  14. Screw the Rep.. I daily get requests for funds from Rep. because I used to donate regularly when Trump was running and got elected. Then the rest of the party threw him under the bus even when they knew the election was fraudulent. I now don’t even look at the and throw them in the trash.

  15. Just when I thought that maybe these Republicans have finally started to grow a spine, here they are about to cave to the Democrats again.

    The word “bipartisanship” needs to be struck from the English language. When are these Republicans going to realize there can be NO bipartisanship. The Democrats are insane. If you try to compromise with insanity, you will lose EVERY TIME.
