President Joe Biden is pursuing 'multiple paths forward' on infrastructure, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. That means a lot of congressional Democrats meeting with a lot of Republicans against the backdrop of Sen. Mitch McConnell's poisoning the process. At the same time, rank-and-file Democrats are raising alarms about how much their 'moderate' colleagues are giving away. Those multiple paths include an offer from the House 'problem solvers,' a bipartisan group of 29 Democrats and 29 Republicans—enough to deny either side a majority—with a $1.25 trillion package with $761.8 billion in new spending that thus far does not include how to pay for it. It also includes the bipartisan Senate group of about eight senators headed up Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Rob Portman, who will then present any package they come up with to a larger group of 20. It also includes leadership preparing for a budget reconciliation bill that won't require any Republican votes with Biden's blessing.
