    Here's the thing. Im not disagreeing with you, the opposite really. But, your initial statement and this one that I quoted are very different conversations.

    Yeah, I feel you.

    I just get fired up.

    I gotta get fired up about something. This one seems like low-hanging fruit for me.

    That's fine. I understand. I was just clarifying so you wouldn't think I was just having a go at you. This kind of thread about construction is the only type of thread I can really intellectually hang with as I have almost 2 decades of experience

    Such a weird two days. Headlines from Friday are all null at this point where I have to wipe half the podcasts in my queue.

    Well so far I think there’s still only 21 senators who said they are on board so we don’t know if there’s 60 yet til the vote gets closer. After that, there isn’t necessarily assurance Pelosi will put it on the floor in the house as she did the same ultimatum Biden did and I’m not aware of her walking it back. It also seems a bit implied that still might be the case because Biden even mentioned something alone the lines about the Congress sorting that stuff out.

    @DavidsGhost

    there also isn’t an actual bill yet and just a framework. It’s completely possible when it gets into details of what the funding specifically goes to that we will see more disagreement.

    House passes $715 billion transportation and water infrastructure bill
    CNN
    Seems like this might be the bill that is used between the House and Senate if the bipartisan Senate infrastructure bill passes. Since the Senate hasn't even released a bill, the House has somewhat set the stage for negotiations between the two chambers. What's interesting is if this is the only bill needed to get something to Biden's desk, it might mean Pelosi might be okay with it not being tied to the reconciliation bill. Seeing different reports about whether it's a completely different bill or possible to match up to the Senate bill. Haven't seen the main differences between each. My guess would more green energy initiatives and more spending are in this one but again, the Senate hasn't actually released their bill yet dispite all the news and discussions about it. The House bill vote nearly fell along party lines, with only two republican votes. This bill also brought a return of earmarks.

    The IRS funding has somehow become a roadblock here. One thing already ridiculous about that piece is it expects to pull in way more than the IRS projects so this bill isn’t truly deficit neutral on that price alone.

    Also, a procedural vote is expected on Wednesday but a draft hasn’t even been finalized yet and main sponsors of the bill like Romney said they would have to vote no since nothing is even there to know what they are voting on.

    Expect this coming week for a lot of shit to hit the fan if things don’t change.

    Vote failed today to move forward on debate, mainly because there isn't even a draft present at this point. Sometimes bills do get through on the procedural vote before a full bill is available but in this case, nah. Portman says they still need a week to iron out the pay fors and get all of the 11 Republicans who originally backed it to stay on board. Romney said 3/4 of the issues are resolved at this point and he doesn't see why the rest won't be resolved over the rest of this week. Schumer has said he's fine with a revote and it can come to the floor whenever they think that have 60 votes. The guess though would be if a second vote fails, they will have to pair this into the reconciliation as one bill.

    The bipartisan bill will be selling off roads, bridges, and damns. I hope it doesn't get passed.

    The conservatives want to kick the infrastructure can down the road until the entire country crumbles.

    I don’t know what’s wrong with these people. This failing infrastructure should’ve been addressed years ago. When is a good time to actually address these issues?

    If there was a vote on finalizing a cure for cancer, the Republicans would find a way to vote against it if passing it meant helping Joe Biden.

    That is not why the vote failed. Please tell me you don't actually believe that. Schumer did the right thing in bringing the vote to the floor to be the eternal negotiators on record. Republicans want nothing more than to do nothing. Especially when it's beneficial politically to Biden. Schumer learned from the mistakes of Obama in trying to negotiate in good faith with McConnell and the Republicans...who were in the end never really want a solution, just to drag things out until they can flip one of the chambers or the White House.
