Schumer: Democrats Will Pass Reconciliation Bill Without GOP Regardless of Infrastructure Deal

‘I think there are large numbers of people in our caucus — and I sympathize with this — who will not vote for a bipartisan bill unless they’re quite certain what’s going to be in reconciliation’

(Via Just the News)

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer revealed that Senate Democrats plan to pass another budget reconciliation bill without Republican votes in the 50-50 chamber even if a bipartisan infrastructure deal is reached.

A group of 10 Democratic and Republican senators has presented a framework on infrastructure to the White House for review. 

Schumer said the bipartisan framework doesn't go far enough on climate change, a concern expressed by Democratic Sen. Edward Markey of Massachusetts, a sponsor of the Green New Deal.
