Biden Ends Negotiations with GOP on Infrastructure

It is now official… Joe Biden is done talking to Republicans to try to find common ground on infrastructure.

Fox News just published a report that Biden ended negotiations with the group that was being led by Senator Shelley Capito (R-W.V.).

They could not apparently get on the same page regarding some of the excess spending, so they called it a day.

Biden Ends It

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, on the negotiations being ended, stated that Biden had “informed Senator Capito today that the latest offer from her group did not, in his view, meet the essential needs of our country to restore our roads and bridges, prepare us for our clean energy future, and create jobs.

“He offered his gratitude to her for her efforts and good faith conversations, but expressed his disappointment that, while he was willing to reduce his plan by more than $1 trillion, the Republican group had increased their proposed new investments by only $150 billion.”

Capito also released a statement after negotiations were called off, stating, “Despite the progress, we made in our negotiations, the president continued to respond with offers that included tax increases as his pay for, instead of several practical options that would have not been harmful to individuals, families, and small businesses.”

She added, “While I appreciate President Biden’s willingness to devote so much time and effort to these negotiations, he ultimately chose not to accept the very robust and targeted infrastructure package, and instead, end our discussions. However, this does not mean bipartisanship isn’t feasible.”

I have said it before and I will say it again, this administration has no desire for true bipartisanship.

Biden’s idea of bipartisanship is to take our deal or leave the room, so Republicans left the room.

All the talk of bipartisanship has been nothing but lip service from the very outset.

“When EU leaders tackled Biden over high U.S. gas prices at the G20 meeting in Bali last week, the American president simply seemed unaware of the issue, according to the senior official…”

Two days ago, Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden is "directly involved" in negotiations to avert a massive rail strike.

Today, Biden said, "I have not directly engaged yet."
