Republicans release their $568billion counter to Biden's infrastructure plan

WASHINGTON DC- APRIL 20 Sen. Joe Manchin D-WV. speaks during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing to examine the American Jobs Plan focusing on infrastructure climate change and investing in our nations future

"I think they should be separated", Manchin said.

'Business Roundtable has long advocated for increased investment in America's transportation, water, energy and communications infrastructure, and we estimate that an investment of approximately $1 trillion above baseline over 10 years is necessary to return USA physical infrastructure to a state of good fix, expand capacity to meet expected demand and invest in new green infrastructure'. "I can't believe that people believe that if you just do it my way, that will give us the momentum to get through the next election".

"While President Biden would like to do things that have nothing to do with infrastructure, my view is that we can have that conversation at some point in time, but what we ought to focus on is what we seem to have an agreement on", Toomey said.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell also expressed optimism the GOP plan could lead to a final bipartisan deal. The House was created to be hot as a firecracker.

Senate passes Asian hate crimes bill with bipartisan support
In January, Biden issued an executive order condemning anti-Asian hate crimes during the pandemic. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House would take and pass the Senate legislation next month.

Manchin continued by speaking about the Senate's history, "The House was created to be hot as a firecracker, we were created to cool off, and that's the Founding Fathers". "We were created to cool it off".

Manchin also spoke about bipartisan plans on guns and infrastructure. All Democrats in the Senate would've needed to vote in favor of the proposal for it to have passed. Manchin said he believed the tax should be set in between at 25%.

Despite flickers of bipartisanship, the parties remain far apart on infrastructure and other issues as Mr. Biden nears his 100th day in office and seeks to press his agenda, including a next wave of spending on antipoverty and education programs he wants to be paid for by higher taxes on the wealthy. "If I don't vote to get on it, it's not going anywhere". "We'll go from here".

Manchin on Sunday told CNN he would support a smaller bill with a "more targeted" approach to infrastructure. "He is trying to pick a number instead of first saying, what do we need to make America competitive?"

"President Biden has presented his infrastructure proposal and Senator Capito has now presented a plan that reflects the input of many Senate Republicans", stated Neil Bradley, executive vice president and chief policy officer for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
