Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) slams Joe Biden for failing to rally the Democrat Party as they continue arguing over passing legislation. During an interview on Sunday, Barrasso thought Biden would help negotiate between progressive and moderate Democrats, but instead “surrendered to the radical wing of his party.

Certain Democrats are currently holding hostage the bipartisan infrastructure bill unless an agreement can be made on the $3.5 trillion spending package. Barrasso added Democrats are “driving the bus and Joe Biden is just along for the ride,” due to his ongoing failures while in office.

During an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press, senior White House Advisor Cedric Richmond said the White House is fully committed to passing both the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the reconciliation package.

“People will be disappointed, people will not get everything they want, that is the art of legislating, but the goal here is to get both bills,” said Richmond during the interview.

Both Democrat Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.) have been vocal about lowering the price of the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package with Manchin stating he wouldn’t support anything over $1.5 trillion. Meanwhile, Democrats recently delayed a vote on the bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill with Sinema calling the move “inexcusable and completely disappointing.”

Additionally, Republicans continue to say there’s a different agenda behind the large partisan spending package.

“Democrats are on the march to big socialism. They have the House. They have the Senate. They have the White House,” said Barrasso. “This is blowout spending on a scale that we really haven’t seen before in this country. Every Republican is against it because of the permanent damage it would do to our economy, to our country, so all of the things are linked together.”

In the meantime, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has stated the infrastructure bill, whose vote had been delayed, would need to be approved before the end of October as highway funding legislation will soon expire. Furthermore, it seems Democrats will continue to rack up arguments as talks are still continuing over the spending package.
