Daily DC Insider
Joe Biden is doing everything he can to keep his infrastructure initiatives alive in Congress.
According to press secretary Jen Psaki, the White House presented Senate Republicans with a $1.7 trillion counterproposal to President Biden’s infrastructure bills on Friday. Biden’s first infrastructure proposal was estimated to cost about $2.3 trillion.
The counterproposal suits Republicans’ drive to limit broadband funding while moving closer to their figures for road and bridge investment costs.
“In our view, this is the act – the art, I should say, of seeking common ground,” said Psaki on Friday.
The counteroffer from the Biden administration comes after Senate Republicans introduced a $568 billion reduction to the infrastructure bill.
But no matter how many proposals the White House offers,it won’t change how Democrats are using the word “infrastructure” to include pet projects and programs that fit into their liberal agenda.

But King didn’t expect such a massive response from his post. “We had hundreds and hundreds of likes, hundreds and hundreds of shares,” he said.
