Biden's Infrastructure Bill Panned For Not Being About Infrastructure, GOP Has Another Idea

Republicans intend to reveal an infrastructure package that eliminates items like funding for elder care to counter President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion proposal, some GOP senators announced Wednesday.

The large Democrat package would allocate $400 billion for the care of the elderly and disabled, among other provisions that would not be covered in typical infrastructure bills. Republicans want to cut the total amount by narrowing the focus to building and upgrading roads, bridges, and other traditional infrastructure pieces.

“What I’d like to do is get back to what I consider the regular definition of infrastructure in terms of job creation. So that’s roads, bridges, ports, airports, including broadband into that water infrastructure,” Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), the top Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, announced on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
