Sen. Portman: 11 GOP Senators ‘Absolutely Committed’ to Infrastructure Deal — It Helps Biden Keep Pledge
Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the 11 Republican senators working on an infrastructure deal are “absolutely committed to it.”
Anchor Chuck Todd said, “There are many Democratic activists whispering in the administration’s ear. You think you have 11 Republicans, and the deal dies, or this is being dragged back. How committed is this group of 11 Republicans to sticking by this bill even if Mitch McConnell says he can’t vote for it?” --->READ MORE HERE

Bernie Sanders Says Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Is ‘Mostly Good’:
Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-VT) offered up some mild praise for the bipartisan infrastructure bill proposed by a group of 20 senators, saying that it’s “mostly good” but that he’s still concerned that it will be paid for via electric vehicle fees and increased gas taxes, which he doesn’t support.
Amid a stalemate in negotiations between the White House and Senate Republicans, a bipartisan group of lawmakers announced last week that they had reached an infrastructure deal that would include $579 billion in new spending. While still just a fraction of President Joe Biden’s most recent $1.7 trillion proposal—down from an initial $2.3 trillion—this latest agreement has sparked some optimism due to 11 GOP senators signing on to the deal.
At the same time, it is still up in the air whether the bill can garner enough Democratic support, specifically due to apprehension from progressives over the funding of the legislation and that it excludes climate-based issues. --->READ MORE HERE
