Are there some things missing that we would love? Of course there are,” Cramer continued. “But this is a 50-50 상원. Democrats have a majority in the House and the White House. So you’re going to have to take some of those things to get all of the other really good things.

Republicans who oppose the bill, 하나, say much of the bill is not actually about infrastructure, and decry the fact that it is not fully paid for,

“[W]e have a package with some infrastructure—good for our economy—riddled with big government and massive deficit spending—over a quarter of a trillion dollars in the hole,” 이것의. 빌 해거티, R-Tenn., 말했다. He’s been the most vocal opponent of the bill, single-handedly delaying proceedings by days.

이것의. 마이크 라운드, R-S.D., who has been accompanying his wife for cancer treatments initially supported the bill but Tuesday said he opposes its final form due toprogressive mandates and federal funding clawbacks that I believe go too far.

And former President Donald Trump has vocally opposed the deal for weeks.

Nobody will ever understand why Mitch McConnell allowed this non-infrastructure bill to be passed,” Trump said Thursday. “He has given up all of his leverage for the big whopper of a bill that will follow. I have quietly said for years that Mitch McConnell is the most overrated man in politics—now I don’t have to be quiet anymore.

The bill will now head to the House of Representatives where it faces an uncertain path forward.

Moderate House Democrats are asking Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D- 칼리프., to immediately hold a vote on the legislation, without connecting it to any other bill. But Pelosi and progressive Democrats like Rep. 알렉산드리아 오 카시오 코르테즈, D-N.Y., say they will refuse to vote on the infrastructure bill until the Senate passes Democrats’ 거대한 $ 3.5 trillion spending package via budget reconciliation.

It’s not clear that Democrats have the votes to get that legislation through the 50-50 상원. And even if it does Democratsmargin in the House is very thin as well – moderates have already been expressing concerns about the plan’s price tag.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said on “폭스 뉴스 일요일” that he hopes the House will consider the infrastructure bill on its own merits. But it is unclear how far the Biden administration is willing to go to pressure Pelosi and House progressives to shepherd the bipartisan bill to the president’s desk.
