Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has criticized Joe Biden for already caving to the left on the proposed infrastructure deal. While speaking on the Senate floor on Thursday, McConnell decried Democrat leadership for their “short-lived” bipartisanship.

This comes after Biden threated to veto the infrastructure proposal if lawmakers didn’t additionally pass a separate reconciliation bill. McConnell also accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) of “pulling the rug out from under their bipartisan negotiators.”

He went on to suggest Biden doesn’t really want to work with Republicans as the Democrat has been flipping on his word to appease his own party. McConnell added how Biden’s remarks prove that he has no desire to reach a bipartisan outcome, warning that Democrats will stop at nothing in order to “keep their runaway spending train chugging along all summer.”

“But really caving completely in less than two hours, that’s not the way to show you’re serious about getting a bipartisan outcome. So, look, I hope our colleagues can recover and get their good faith efforts back on track,” said McConnell.

In the meantime, House Speaker Pelosi has said that she will not allow the bipartisan bill to be introduced on the floor of the House until the reconciliation bill passes through the Senate.
