The so-called “infrastructure” bill is expected to be around $1.2 trillion over eight years with roughly $550 billion in new spending, but details on key components were still being worked out. Some procedural steps still lie ahead before the final passage.

CNN correspondent Manu Raju tweeted about the 17 cowardly Republicans who voted this afternoon to advance Biden’s Obama’s climate change infrastructure bill to the Senate floor:

67-32, 17 Senate Republicans voted to break a filibuster and proceed to the bipartisan infrastructure plan. All Democrats voted yes. Measure expected to be on the floor for at least a week and bipartisan coalition will have to deal with amendment process

“Clearing the Fog” clarified why this bill is not a done deal:

Just to be clear, the infrastructure bill has not been passed. 17 Republicans agreed to break the filibuster, and allow it to come to the floor. It isn’t nearly over.

Conservative Fox News host Laura Ingraham also tweeted about the vote by the feckless Republicans who continue to sell the future of our children down the river:

Here are the 17 Republicans who voted for the Romney deal that the White House & Washington Post are celebrating tonight:

Roy Blunt (Mo.)

Richard Burr (N.C.)

Shelley Moore Capito (W. Va.)

Bill Cassidy (La.)

Susan Collins (Maine)

Kevin Cramer (N.D.)

Mike Crapo (Idaho)

Lindsey Graham (S.C.)

Chuck Grassley (Iowa)

John Hoeven (N.D.)

Mitch McConnell (Ky.)

Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)

Rob Portman (Ohio)

James Risch (Idaho)

Mitt Romney (Utah)

Thom Tillis (N.C.)

Todd Young (Ind.)

President Trump warned the cowardly Republicans “headed up by SUPER RINO Mitt Romney” against voting for the “infrastructure” bill, telling them, “patriots will never forget!” and that “lots of primaries will be coming your way!”

AZ Central reports that not every Democrat is in favor of the insane spending bill:

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema does not support Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget plan that aims to deliver major components of President Joe Biden’s economic agenda that Democrats hope to pass after moving a separate bipartisan infrastructure deal that Sinema negotiated.

Sinema, D-Ariz., told The Arizona Republic on Wednesday she had reviewed the Senate Budget Committee’s spending framework and has told Senate leadership and Biden that she supports many of its goals, including job growth and American competitiveness.

“I have also made clear that while I will support beginning this process, I do not support a bill that costs $3.5 trillion — and in the coming months, I will work in good faith to develop this legislation with my colleagues and the administration to strengthen Arizona’s economy and help Arizona’s everyday families get ahead,” Sinema said in a written statement.
