McCarthy Says Biden Pulled a ‘Bait and Switch’ from Moderate to Socialist

Tim Scott (R) on Wednesday with an insult on Twitter, but the Republican senator fired back with a stinging reminder from the recent past.
The Republican leader said he has not met or spoken with the president since Biden took office. In an interview Sunday, Manchin said the best politics is "good government", adding "one-party-thinking" will get the country nowhere. Republicans would be the first one that would work with him, but I think the very first thing we would need to do, define what infrastructure is, roads, bridges, airports, broadband. "I'm not going to be part of blowing up this Senate of ours, or basically, this democracy of ours, or the republic that we have".
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) called McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) the leaders of the Republican Party on Monday, pointedly avoiding bestowing the title on Trump, with whom she has been openly feuding since a mob of his supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol on January 6. "What we ought to do is make sure we're focusing on the needs of the American people".
Biden's sweeping proposals in his infrastructure proposalalso include $400 billion for in-home and community based care for the elderly and disabled as well as $100 billion for schools and child care facilities - two areas left out of a $568 billion Republican counteroffer introduced last week. "This is an active conversation, and I think that it's a good beginning".
She said she would resume discussions Monday. A lot of the money we spent for Covid had nothing to do with Covid...
Business Roundtable President & CEO Joshua Bolten said: 'Business Roundtable welcomes the release of the Senate Republican framework as an important step toward bipartisan negotiations on infrastructure investment, ' said Business Roundtable President & CEO Joshua Bolten. 'This is a robust package'.
McCarthy said, "If I look at the 100 days, it's more of a bait and switch". "If you have the violent swings every time you have a party change, then we will have no consistency whatsoever". He is also expected to outline his next major spending plan, more than $1 trillion on antipoverty and education programs that would be paid for through higher taxes on the wealthy that has drawn early GOP opposition.
