“Now is the time to GO BIG” Progressive Dems urge Biden to stop negotiating with Republicans on spending package in favor of “go it alone” approach

According to a new report from Fox Business “Progressive Democrats are calling on President Biden to abandon the infrastructure talks with Republicans, amping up pressure on the White House to go it alone on a sweeping, multitrillion-dollar tax and spending package. ”

“Negotiations began in April and are expected to drag into early June, when Congress returns from recess, as the two sides remain fiercely divided on the next economic spending package – and how to pay for it,” the report continues.

Progressive Rep. Pramila Jayapal tweeted “Mitch McConnell has already said that 100% of his focus is on blocking the Biden agenda. So why are we negotiating with Republicans for a smaller infrastructure plan? Now is the time to GO BIG.”

Meanwhile Bernie Sanders tweeted:

The American people want action, not never-ending “negotiations” and obstructionism, and they will not come out and vote for a party that does not deliver.

If not now, when?
