Yesterday, President Joe Biden announced that the White House had made some headway on a bipartisan framework for an infrastructure bill that would help upgrade America’s roads, bridges, highways, and internet connectivity, among other things. This comes at a time when our nation is deeply divided along party lines, and the Senate is evenly split, with the Democrats holding a slim majority with Vice President Harris’ vote.
Today, Mick Mulvaney and I made an appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box to discuss Biden’s approach, the concerns from both sides of the aisle, and Biden’s plan for funding the project. While there’s a lot of politics at play and further negotiations needed before a final infrastructure bill is presented, this bi-partisan framework, I believe, is an excellent first move for Congress and is a good sign for our nation.
It’s a reminder that when we come together and focus on our shared values and the things that are mutually beneficial, we can find enough common ground to become willing partners. The framework presents the best of America’s ideals and puts our national interests at the forefront.
