Senators Reach Deal on Infrastructure Package

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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?

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.

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.

Infrastructure bill is nothing more than a wish list of political agendas for all those that support it
