Moderate Democrats Reiterate Call for House to Pass Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Before Dems' Reconciliation Plan

Should the House pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill before Democrats finalize their reconciliation bill?

    I’m disappointed that my representative, Mikie Sherrill, was not part of this group. My number one priority when voting for any public office is to avoid partisanship as much as possible. I voted for Mikie Sherrill because she promised this, but her record to date has not demonstrated as much nonpartisanship as I’d like.

    Pass reconciliation first! It will show that you can come back from your second vacation and actually turn something in so the people get the idea that you are actually doing something of the people, by the people and FOR THE PEOPLE!

    The terrorist party has spent decades defunding and shrinking the middle class. It is time we enacted legislation that actually does more than provide corporate and state welfare. I find it disturbing that states that take more from the federal government than they give have any say as to how federal money is spent.

    Neither should pass. One is just 99% pork. The other is an out and out attack on traditional American values. Neither should happen in a heated economy with interest rates heading up and a deficit Congress itself obviously cannot comprehend.. The capitol is completely bereft of common sense.

    I'm glad that the House was able to pass the reconciliation bill. There are more progressive Democrats in the House than these moderates who tried to stall progress. We must get these priorities done this year; the American people can't wait.

    Stop the madness. Turn yourselves in for all kinds of crimes. The military (minus Milley) be in charge to run a new election that is vote in person only and only with citizenship ID.

    Take as much as you can get and then go after the rest of what you want. Our roads are crumbling, fires are polluting our air and devastating people, covid is running rampant because people will take cow and horse meds before they will take the vaccine. Life is getting crazier and crazier. Do what you can when you can. It may be your only chance to do something positive.

    The interests of the American people should take precedence over partisan interest and those of special interests. Congress should prioritize the bipartisan infrastructure bill before considering any bills like the $3.5 trillion plan that does not have support of most Americans. I encourage you, as my representative in Congress and the Senate, to vote NO on the extreme spending plan, while voting YES for the consensus infrastructure bill.

    Pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill first in the House. You're Democrats' not republicans. Don't hold the bipartisan infrastructure bill as hostage to pass your partisan bill. I'm disappointed in the Democratic Party holding the bipartisan bill as hostage. You're acting like the Republicans to get your way. I want both parties to work together.

    You have got to be joking! Why when we are in a Global Crisis does President Biden come out and spew his partisan talking points about his infrastructure plan? The bottom line in my view President, protect our American citizens and bring them hone before you try and hide your efforts by changing the focus.

    We need this bill, we can't back down now. To show the world we can be a better influence, we need to take action against climate change for the greater good, and make corporations pay for funding it for their greed.

    The vote will be too close to call by passing the bipartisan infrastructure bill first. That is costly enough. The 2nd bill is way too expensive and forces our national debt even higher. The national debt is now out of control from the lack of displine from Reagan, GW Bush, Obama, worst of all Trump and now Biden. Nothing is freee. We have a labor problem as it is. Raising taxes too much always fails and disrupts the market and capitalism.

    Whether they pass the bipartisan bill right now or on September 30, it would not go into effect until October 1st. We have time to get other things planned out.

    The 1 trillion dollar "bipartisan" agreement doesn't scratch the surface of our problems, however I would rather them pass it and move on to a more effective bill through budget reconciliation. The American people and humanity doesn't have time for political drama.
