UPDATE:  Only a hours after signaling support for the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework” with a working group of 21 Senators, President Biden let the air out of the legislative effort when he indicated he won’t sign the bipartisan deal if Congress doesn’t also pass a tandem reconciliation bill.  During a press conference, the President said he expected “before the fiscal year is over, that we will have voted on this bill, the infrastructure bill, as well as voted on the budget resolution. But if only one comes to me, this is the only one that comes to me, I’m not signing it. It’s in tandem.”  Backing up the sentiment, Speaker Nancy Pelosi D-Calif.) confirmed Thursday that the House would not vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill until the Senate passes a larger set of Democratic priorities through a budget reconciliation bill.
