Biden advisor says the White House doesn't need GOP support in Congress for infrastructure package

to be bipartisan

A top White House advisor said that President Joe Biden's multitrillion-dollar infrastructure plan doesn't need Congressional Republican support to be considered bipartisan.

"If you looked up 'bipartisan' in the dictionary, I think it would say support from Republicans and Democrats," Anita Dunn told the Washington Post. "It doesn't say the Republicans have to be in Congress."

Another senior Biden advisor echoed that. "The Biden definition of bipartisanship is an agenda that unifies the country and appeals across the political spectrum," Mike Donilon told the Post. "I think it's a pretty good definition to say you're pursuing an agenda that will unite the country, that will bring Democrats and Republicans together across the country."

Their remarks are a fresh sign the Biden administration is prepared to claim a bipartisan victory on another part of their legislative agenda once it is passed, even if it does not secure a single Republican vote in Congress. Biden's $1.9 trillion stimulus plan last month did not garner any GOP support in either chamber.


I would submit the the biggest beneficiaries of broadband expansion are those in rural areas who generally vote Republican.
