More than a week after President Joe Biden unveiled the second of a two-part spending package that totals more than $4 trillion, Republicans signaled unanimous opposition.
“I don’t think there will be any Republican support,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Monday at a press conference in Louisville. “None. Zero.”
McConnell made the remarks as the White House geared up for more bipartisan talks with Congress this week.
A narrow window for action and huge differences between the parties about the size and cost of legislation may make a deal impossible, however.
