Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is now claiming that there is still a ‘good chance’ that a bipartisan infrastructure package could be achieved in the near future, in spite of talks between Republicans and Democrats collapsing.
As The Hill reports:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that Republicans “haven’t given up hope” for a bipartisan infrastructure deal with the Biden administration, even after the White House ended talks earlier this week with a group of Republicans.
“We haven’t given up hope that we’ll be able to reach a deal on something really important for the country that we really need to accomplish, and that is a major infrastructure bill,” McConnell said during an interview with Fox News.
“Yeah, I think it’s clearly possible. We haven’t given up on reaching an agreement on infrastructure. … I think there’s a good chance we can get there,” he added.
