Biden ends GOP infrastructure talks, but new group emerges

By LISA MASCARO and JOSH BOAK

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden ended talks with a group of Republican senators on a big infrastructure package on Tuesday and started reaching out to senators from both parties in a new effort toward bipartisan compromise, setting a summer deadline for Congress to pass his top legislative priority.

The president is walking away from talks with lead Republican negotiator Sen. Shelley Moore Capito after the two spoke Tuesday, but would welcome her in the new bipartisan group, according to an administrative official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private negotiations.

Shortly after the Biden-Capito talks collapsed, 10 senators huddled late Tuesday over pizza — five Republicans, five Democrats — emerging after three hours with some optimism their new effort could create a viable path forward, said a person familiar with the closed-door talks and granted anonymity to discuss them.

At the same time, with anxiety running high as time slips by, Democrats are laying the groundwork to pass some or all of the ambitious package on their own. Biden conferred Tuesday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer about launching the budget resolution process for Senate votes in July, the White House said.

2. Another committee to negotiate for more cuts then

vote against it. Put it up for a vote and remind Joe Manchin if he votes against it how much money he is taking from his state. The Republicans would find a way to get him in line.

5. Sounds like song lyrics that Dems should be singing constantly

"At the same time,
with anxiety running high,
as time slips by"

7. The daylight continues to burn.

Their objective is to waste time. Oh, and lie. And troll. Then, lie some more on their way to cashing some corporate checks to keep their jobs. Best start thinking of how to inspire people in 2022 outside of “the other side is bad”.
