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.

Should McConnell even be pursuing a ‘bipartisan’ deal with President Biden? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Before they finalize their deal, they should view the scene from the movie “Back to School”, where a businessman lectures a college professor on the realities of corruption, graft, bribes and kickbacks inherent with operating companies in our ‘Free Market’.

I’m all in favor of an infrastructure “bill” that requires the tab be paid by having every congressperson who voted for it to contribute 10% of their net worth — and if that’s not enough to cover the price tag, up the percentage to whatever does equate to the proposed expenditure.

You’re dreamin’. It’s more likely that they’ll be profiting from these expenditures. Example: A congressional representative was stumping for improved weather detecting and warning systems in the wake of a tornado disaster that killed a school teacher in a Midwest city. ‘Turns out he owned stock in the company that would manufacture those systems.
