  • Pres. Biden meeting this afternoon with GOP on infrastructure
  • Put forth a reasonable counteroffer
  • WH offered a counter proposal on infrastructure from $2.25 trillion to $1.7 trillion

The White House said that the president will release the details of the proposal later today.

Pres. Biden proposed a $2.25 trillion structure plan. The GOP came back with a $568 million plan.  The plan included raising gas taxes and user fees, which is off the table for Pres. Biden. The president is proposing a rise in the corporate tax rate to pay for the plan.
