I have said that 1.5 Trillion was a reasonable amount for infrastructure to do the job right. Biden has dropped it to 1.7 from 2.2 trillion as he talks with the Republicans. Now he is down to 1.4 trillion, which is about as small as he can go. We will see if he can reach agreement or they will have to go it alone. He is making a solid effort to be bipartisan with this bill. They may have to drop raising taxes on corporations to make it work. This is up to the Republicans now. They won't wait forever on this.
