So much uniting. Always uniting….
President Joe Biden and a bipartisan group of moderate senators on Thursday announced a deal on an infrastructure framework, with Biden and other top Democrats promising to tie it in with a larger reconciliation bill to ameliorate progressives who say the deal doesn’t contain enough Democratic priorities.
But Biden said in a Q&A with reporters that he’s “not signing” the infrastructure bill without an accompanying reconciliation bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said her chamber will not consider one without the other.
'If this is the only thing that comes to me, I'm not signing,' Biden said, with Manchin telling reporters a separate reconciliation bill is 'inevitable.'
