Republican senators plan to announce a new counteroffer bill on infrastructure which is expected to cost around $1 trillion. This after President Biden trimmed down the spending proposal from $2.25 trillion to $1.7 trillion. This isn’t the first time Washington has tried to pass an infrastructure bill, the initiative had fell short during the Trump administration as well despite it being a priority. Former Acting Chief of Staff under President Trump, Mick Mulvaney explains why it is so hard for Congress to pass an infrastructure proposal in any administration and the obstacles it faces. He also weighs in on America’s current labor shortage, if enhanced unemployment benefits are really to blame and if it will impact the minimum wage debate.
On Wednesday April 26th, President Biden requested that intelligence agencies investigate and report on the origins of COVID-19, following the rising credibility of a theory from the Trump administration that the virus may have leaked from a virology lab in Wuhan, China. Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) joins to discuss why the United States should distrust the Chinese government until they are transparent with these investigations, the bipartisan nature of Congress seeking answers on coronavirus origins and the possibility of a boycott of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games. Later, Rep. Griffith explains the GOP progress on negotiating an infrastructure bill and the threat inflation poses to the American people in the next few years.
