President Concludes Infrastructure Conversations

Begins new negotiations with moderate senators.

On Tuesday, President Biden ended his conversations with Congressional opposition about the need for a national infrastructure program. The president indicated that their counteroffer to his initial pitch was not sufficient. According to White House Press Secretary Psaki, the Senate negotiators only “increased their proposed new investments by only $150 billion” after the president offered to cut his initial bid by $1 trillion. 

President Biden will now move forward with another group of negotiators led by Senator Mitt Romney, who calls his group the G-20, a group of 20 moderate Senators looking to make a bi-partisan deal. However, Senator Romney has made it clear that he is unwilling to increase any tax burdens to pay for the infrastructure bill, making the future plan uncertain at this time. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Senator Romney and his group as they consider needed infrastructure.
  • That the Lord would help Congress pass an infrastructure plan that will improve the country.
  • For government officials on both sides of the aisle work together for the best possible plan.
