McCarthy Says Biden ‘Disingenuous’ in Infrastructure Negotiations

This week, we all thought there was a big breakthrough when the Senate announced a bipartisan infrastructure deal.

Both parties made significant compromises, exactly the way it is supposed to work.

Then, Joe Biden, who first appeared to back the bill, stated that he would not sign it if this was all he was getting.

In Tandem

Biden held a garden press conference to show his support of the bill, which lasted about ten seconds.

The idea was that this bill would replace the massive spending package Democrats wanted.

Biden ended that speculation rather quickly, stating, “If only one comes to me, I’m not- this-this is the only one that comes to me, I’m not signing it. It’s in tandem.”

This created significant pushback on the right, with everyone wondering why they bothered to negotiate in the first place.

The plan now seems clear… pass this bill and Dems will write an additional bill for everything they wanted that is not included here and pass it with reconciliation.

Joe Biden tried to dampen the outrage, but his apology only reaffirmed the fact that the White House was very deceptive in its tactics.

Biden stated, “My comments also created the impression that I was issuing a veto threat on the very plan I had just agreed to, which was certainly not my intent.”

He went on to say that he will defend BOTH spending packages.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki even had some creatives to justify a dual track for infrastructure spending.

Now, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is calling out Biden over these “disingenuous” tactics.

He stated, “I think my members think they needed the chiropractor because they got whiplash after watching the president yesterday say there was a deal, then say there was no deal.”

McCarthy added, “I don’t think that’s going to work, I don’t think that’s going to pass, and I think they killed any opportunity. I think it’s disingenuous in every shape or form.”

With House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) also putting the kibosh on the deal unless she sees a complementary reconciliation package, this “bipartisan” charade now seems dead in the water.
