(RepublicanPress.org) – The Biden administration appears determined to force its Leftist agenda on the American people without any Republican support. Working with Senate Democrats, it was able to push through Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package using a legislative device called “budget reconciliation.” Now, the administration is setting its sights on a massive infrastructure package.
On March 25, USA Today reported that Biden was putting the finishing touches on the $3-trillion bill. Dubbed the “Build Back Better” package, the bill is expected to include upgrades to existing bridges, railway systems, roads, and cyber equipment. It will also reportedly include increased healthcare access provisions, clean energy investments, and an overhaul of the nation’s tax code.

Republicans are already pushing back against the measure, signaling they have less than any interest in letting Democrats force another multi-trillion dollar measure through Congress. Although the Left doesn’t have the 60 votes it would need to defeat a filibuster, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said he thinks they could use budget reconciliation to pass that bill without bipartisan support just like they did with the COVID-19 relief package.
