Washington, DC — Today, Mary Small, National Advocacy Director, issued the following statement: “Here we go again. I don’t know how many examples we need before Democrats finally understand that Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans do not negotiate in good faith. Now, this bipartisan infrastructure package is the latest addition to the litany of bills in which Republicans have dragged out negotiations to ensure the Senate doesn't deliver popular policies to the American people. In addition to stalling, Republicans have negotiated bad pay-fors, watered down climate provisions and excluded progressive priorities and yet STILL won’t move to debate the bill.

“We’re tired of watching this game, so certainly Senate Democrats are getting tired of playing it. Pass a bold reconciliation bill that rebuilds our economy, and doesn’t need Republican votes. Kill the filibuster so we can get to the business of governing. This is getting ridiculous.”
