FOX News and The Hill confirming that President Joe Biden is set to meet with the two swing voters on the White House's USD3.5trn infrastructure package later this evening to hear their concerns about the deal.
- Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are the most fiscally conservative of the 50 Democratic senators, and have consistently voiced their concerns about the size and scope of the administration's USD3.5trn infrastructure package, known as the 'American Families Plan'.
- With Senate Republicans opposed to the deal in its entirety, to avoid a filibuster Democratic leadership is seeking to send the package through as a budget resolution under the reconciliation process.
- If this proceeds only a majority of senators will be required to vote in favour to pass, rather than the 60 required to break a filibuster. As such, all 50 Dem sens would need to vote in favour to allow VP Kamala Harris to cast the tie breaking vote.
- This gives Sinema and Manchin significant sway on the future of the package. Should be noted that both senators would likely face major backlash from majority of congressional colleagues, including leftist Dems in House who have said they will block the bipartisan infrastructure package (supported by Sinema and Manchin) unless the larger White House deal is passed first in the House.
