Senators Craft Infrastructure Counteroffer

Moderate members of the Senate meet to negotiate.

Members of the Senate minority countered President Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan this past week, submitting a stripped-down $568 billion plan that still handles the issues addressed in the initial package. Some members of the Senate majority felt that this was too large a cut to the initial $2.3 trillion budget.

The White House and more moderate senators reacted positively to the counteroffer. Press Secretary Jen Psaki called it “the beginning of a discussion,” and the 10 moderates from each party met to discuss their common ground. Politicians from the president’s party feel some pressure due to the upcoming deadline and are trying to negotiate quickly.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That Senators would find unity in teamwork and compromise.
  • That moderate members of the Senate would have discernment in negotiations.
  • For members of the Senate to represent their constituents effectively.
