Biden and GOP Abandon Infrastructure Talks

President Joe Biden and GOP Sen. Shelley Moore Capito walked away from their weeks long infrastructure negotiations, according to an administration official, and the president will now focus on working with a bipartisan group of 20 U.S. Senators. The administration also has the option of pushing for a package through budget reconciliation, but Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) has expressed his opposition to the move, leaving Democrats at least one vote short without Republican support.

An administration official said Biden never agreed to shift coronavirus relief funds to pay for infrastructure – a major GOP request – and that Republicans never increased the price tag of their offer enough to satisfy Biden, who sought at least $1 trillion in new spending over current infrastructure spending levels.
