Republicans Won’t Back Biden’s $4 Trillion Plans
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) confirmed Monday that no Republicans will support President Joe Biden’s $4 trillion plans.
He said that Biden shouldn’t count on Republican support for his spending. In addition, McConnell said Biden will need every Democrat in Congress to make his plans happen.

Get Their Ducks In A Row
Speaking at a press conference, McConnell said it's more likely some Democrats like their plans than the other way around. He also warned against using the reconciliation process.
“If they can’t get all their ducks in a row, to use reconciliation again they’ll have to have every single Democrat in the Senate, all of them, in line, in lockstep, in order to do that.
A number of them are saying they agree with us. I think it’s worth talking about, but I don’t think there’ll be any Republican senators, none, zero, for the $4.1 trillion grab bag, which has an infrastructure in it, but a whole lot of other stuff,” he said.
In addition, McConnell won’t allow for a repeal of the 2017 tax bill that lowered corporate tax rates by 21%. He said that the GOP isn’t willing to pay for Biden’s largesse by undoing the 2017 bill.
“We’re open to doing a roughly $600 billion package which deals with what all of us would agree is infrastructure and to talk about how to pay for that in any way other than reopening the 2017 tax reform bill, which I believe – and all of my members believe – is what created, as of February 2020, the best economy in 50 years,” McConnell told reporters.
Moderate Republicans Wants a Smaller Infrastructure Bill
Fox News reported moderate Republicans led by Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) called for an infrastructure project that costs $568 billion. She said that the White House acknowledged their proposal as the beginning of a discussion on bipartisan legislation.
Biden actually laid out two plans aimed to create major investments in key areas. Combined, this ambitious program will require at least $4 trillion.
The first, the American Families Plan, carries a $1.8 trillion price tag. It covers significant investments in education and families.
Also, it expands the Child Tax Credit and creates the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit. These programs will allow families to receive up to half of their child care spending as a credit on their taxes.
The second one, the American Jobs Plan covers infrastructure spending that reaches $2.7 trillion. It covers investments in transportation infrastructure, schools, and upgrading water facilities.
In addition, the program also includes spending for VA hospitals and federal buildings, care economy, manufacturers and small businesses, and workforce development.
White House Pulling for the $4 Trillion Plans
In a statement, the White House explained their plan. The administration said that “this is no time to build back to the way things were. This is the moment to reimagine and rebuild a new economy. The American Jobs Plan is an investment in America that will create millions of good jobs, rebuild our country’s infrastructure, and position the United States to out-compete China.”
In addition, Biden also proposed the Made In America Tax Plan. Given the hefty price tag, Biden wants to readjust the corporate tax rate at 28% to pay for the plans.
Meanwhile, the Daily Wire reported that “The Congressional Budget Office estimated Biden’s American Rescue Plan would add $1.9 trillion to the deficit over the next decade.
According to Just the News, the final version of both pieces of legislation ‘are estimated to cost about $4 trillion combined’ as our national debt currently sits at $28 trillion.”
Watch the Bloomberg Quicktake Now report saying that the GOP Won't Support Tax Hikes to Pay for Biden's Infrastructure Plan:
Do you support Biden’s American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan? Do you agree that Republicans shouldn’t support the current version of the bill but instead bring it down to a more moderate amount?

We All need to really support our current 46 president Joe Biden. He is doing a great job in
Lots of ways ….
He’s an idiot 50 years of proof of that. trillions of dollars of waste as usual his family and other dems will have their hands in the pie. support for illegals is all they care about, flood the country with more and let America suffer no social security support….
I wouldn’t support a dam word that falls from his pie-hole – but i would support impeachment, being charged with tyranny, treason, corruption and lying though.
Dopey Joe your ruining our country Who’s gonna pay for all this this is crazy
Democrats have only one goal, destroy the country by destroying the economy. Over spending, increasing the debt, will create such a burden…allowing illegals to invade pits more burden on the taxpayers…failed social policies of blue states cause overtaxing of red states…anyone who voted Democratic is a traitor to the country, its citizens and the Constitution.
It is moving the country towards a socialist agenda. Look at how this has been accomplished in cuba and venezuela. Read about it and you will see. At best we will turn into an european socialism with reduced rights and high taxes.
Biden is a fuckin meat puppet
President Biden may be spending but he is trying to correct too many arrogant mistakes made by the very Republicans that kept Obama and sometimes Bush from implementing any plan to RESTORE our great country to a better way of living for all Americans. I get so tired of hearing the moaning that goes on when a Democrat is the president but yet when a Republican is in office others jump their butts all over whatever it is to pass. I know we have a GREAT man in office who is doing a damn GREAT job–at least he ain’t killing us!!
BMOORE, Your a brainwashed monkey, read his policies over the last 45 years, The only thing he accomplished was collecting his paycheck, Sad for United states
@BMOORE….YOU a Freaking ignorant person if I have heard one!!! China joe is a left wing progressive puppet!!! And this is NOT coming from a republican as you so say!!! I have NEVER seen in my 65 years such a disgusting party! My whole family are or were democrats, but they are not anymore! The left wing is no longer a party for the people of this great country!!! Tired of people like you that clearly does NOT educate yourself but rather follow the fake progressives news! This current administration will go down as one of the WORST presidential administrations in the white house we have ever seen. Case and point, research what’s going on at the southern boarder! And sooo much more! Four years can’t come soon enough!!!
BMOORE, collecting there well fair check while living in the basement! Keep on flowing that money joe, so we all progressive liberals don’t have to work for a living. BMOORE, better way of life is to have the government to take care of them at any expense!!! So very sad!
Is the Turtle *finally* growing a *set*?
His Fraudulencey, Mad King Biden*, his stooges, his “deep state” operatives & Cali-hag millionairess Pelosi want to destroy as much of America as they can before facing seventy-four (74) million Trump voters in the mid-term elections. They know they will lose a significant number of seats in the House especially, & they only have a slim margin now.
Time to remove some RINOs in the Senate too.
Edna Badman….. sleepy Joe is not our president he is just a particle in the swamp ….. you need to open your eyes take the blinders off and get your facts straight …..paying for all these illegals is going to bankrupt our country and ruin so many other things……if anyone is following “”Judicial Watch”” keep following them and subscribe to their letters

He’s and his party are insane. What he is doing will bring this Country to economic collapse. But they don’t care as long as they are raking of millions from all these programs. They want to be the rich and the elite and everyone else be subservient to them. They have sold this Country down the tubes.
Hey edna and bmoore, if he’s doing such a good job, why is the country in such bad shape. First, he was cheates into the White House and isn’t the legitimate President. In fact, I have it on good authority, Trump actually flipped CA. Covid soaring, allowing illegals to flood in, even with covid. Lifted the travel ban immediately even though there is a pandemic. Spending spending spending, huying from China, 1,000’s of jobs being lost. Burying our country in debt. You thought Jimmy Carter screwed things up, this is going to be waaaay worse. Here’s what a good job he’s doing:
So let me get this straight. We have a President with dementia. An ex-call girl for a Vice President. A transvestite over HHS. A President’s son who is a crackhead, a human-trafficking pedophile who money laundered billions from other countries sharing half with his dad. The crackhead’s buddy is the head of the DEA. The crackhead’s other buddy is now in the DOJ. A guy who is sleeping with the Chinese spy is over our DHS. We are borrowing all of our money now from China. Thousands of immigrants are coming in for our jobs and Social Security Benefits. And the Democrats are still focusing on destroying a former President. Add this to the 40,000 jobs lost in the past months. Yet we are supposed to believe that Biden is pro America? You just can’t make all this up. God help our children & grandchildren.
Why aren’t Republicans impeaching the illegitimate President & VP. Because they’re ALL corrupt. The VP was bailing out criminal thugs ( burn, loot, murder and auntqueefa, the democrats “brown shirt.” But the idiot president said it’s not real, “just an idea.” An idea to commit crime and destroy the country. Impeach both of these racist frauds now.
Thank God. Like the bull, “for the people” only 9% related to covid. All government spending is just to make them and their cronies richer.
Janet and all of you smart enough to know that , not only do I not support that idiot, they need to impeach him now while we still have a country to fix!! Get the only man that EVER. Helped this country back in the presidents office where he belongs TRUMP
What we are seeing is the Cloward- Piven strategy put in place. the goal is to bankrupt the U.S.A. Then say capitalism does not work. maybe it is time to NEVER vote for any democrat.
Joe and the WHOLE Biden family are CROOKS
If it wasn’t for the double standards that the Media gives them(the Bidens) then all you SHEEPLE dumb Dumb’s would see The 46 president is a FAKE!
All you people making comments here are always talking out your A-Holes! You all know nothing about politics at all! You just talk bull crap and ridiculous chatter like children! Get off your high stool and be a normal person! Stop trying to act like you’re all are intelligent because you’re stupid trying to talk smart!🤗
Joe Biden the Illegal President of the United States intends to destroy our Country and the Constitution. It has to stop, they have to be stopped. I wish that someone would call for his IMPEACHMENT. I grew up just out side of Washington D.C. in a Democratic home. I have been a registered Democrat since I was 18 yrs. and I’ve never seen such Ignorance as we have today.
I like the Republicans infrastructure plan. The U.S.A. could use the upgrades.
I wouldn’t support him if was leaning over hot coals. He’s awful and ruining this country. Everywhere I go I see businesses closing and others with NOW HIRING signs all over the place because Biden GIVES lazy asses free money to sit on their couches and do NOTHING. It’s pathetic and he should be ashamed of ruining the reputation of what this country was build on HARD WORK!
NO I won’t support one more handout. GO BACK TO WORK AMERICA!
