Those words, from President Joe Biden on infrastructure spending, were enough to trigger a Wall Street celebration . "Infrastructure spending strengthens an already very strong economic growth outlook," said Jeff Buchbinder, equity strategist for LPL Financial. Victoria's Secret has made a huge pivot. Although marketing trends changed, Victoria's Secret mostly stuck to the same playbook that helped it dominate the industry for years: push-up bras and scantily-clad celebrity models known as its "Angels." But Victoria's Secret seems to be on a much better track.

The bipartisan group of Senators negotiating an infrastructure package will head to the White House to meet with President Joe Biden on Thursday. The lawmakers appeared optimistic after closed-door meetings with White House officials Wednesday. “We’ve agreed to a framework on the entire package,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters Wednesday afternoon. White House officials also met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday. “I would call this a much sturdier framework,” Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said.

The bipartisan group of senators meeting with White House officials said they reached a 'framework' for a deal. They will present their framework for the massive spending package to President Joe Biden tomorrow. "There's a framework of agreement on a bipartisan infrastructure package," Collins told reporters on Wednesday after the meeting. Simultaneously, Senate Democrats are considering pushing through an infrastructure package drafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is chair of the Senate Budget Committee. Through budget reconciliation in July, an infrastructure package could be approved without GOP support.

"White House senior staff had two productive meetings today with the bipartisan group of Senators who have been negotiating about infrastructure," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement Wednesday night. "The group made progress towards an outline of a potential agreement, and the President has invited the group to come to the White House tomorrow to discuss this in-person." President Joe Biden invited Democratic and Republican infrastructure negotiators to the White House on Thursday, as senators say they have moved closer to a deal to revamp transportation, broadband and utilities. Twenty-one senators — 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats — have backed the infrastructure framework. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., met with White House officials on Wednesday night.

Schumer and Pelosi are plowing ahead with a separate spending package without the GOP. Most Democrats are pressing for a separate package focused on the social initiatives Biden has laid out, including healthcare, childcare, and education. But all 50 Democratic senators would have to support the sprawling spending package, given the strong odds of united GOP opposition. "We've agreed on a framework on the entire package and we're going to the White House," Sen. Mitt Romney told reporters. The bipartisan group of 10 lawmakers is evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the bipartisan group of lawmakers who negotiated an infrastructure deal. President Joe Biden announced on Thursday that the group reached a deal. The New York lawmaker called out the group for its lack of diversity. The senators who led the infrastructure negotiations with Biden include five Republicans and five Democrats. "This is why a bipartisan [package] alone isn't acceptable," Ocasio-Cortez went on to say.

Gail Collins: Bret, it’s been a while between conversations and although I’ve been on vacation I have noticed a lot of … stuff. Action-stopping Joe Manchin? Years ago I won a minor journalism award on the strength of my mockery of Mitt Romney’s presidential bid. I really don’t understand how some liberals attack the filibuster as some kind of emblem of white supremacy when both Barack Obama and Joe Biden were defending its sanctity during a period of Republican control of the Senate. Come to think of it, as Democratic senators past and present go, I think I like Manchin almost as much as I like the other Joe — Lieberman, that is.

‘Forever war’ authorization measure faces delay in U.S. Senate

"We should fully evaluate the conditions on the ground, the implications of repealing the 2002 AUMF for our friends, and how adversaries—including ISIS and Iranian backed militia groups—would react," they said in a letter. President Joe Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer support repeal. That authority has shifted to the president, however, due to the "forever war" AUMFs, which do not expire - including the 2002 Iraq AUMF - passed since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Former President Donald Trump cited the 2002 AUMF in early 2020 as one justification for attacking an Iranian military commander at an airport in Baghdad. The panel has scheduled a second business meeting for Thursday, although it was not yet certain the AUMF would come up then.

“It’s not the same Republican Party,” said Representative Donald McEachin of Virginia.

Senate Budget Committee Chair Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said Thursday that the committee is considering a $6 trillion spending figure. There's no realistic chance that Democrats will finish the bill before the monthlong August recess. "We're just starting to meet now with committee chairs and the caucuses to get their input and putting it together," House Budget Committee Chair John Yarmuth, D-Ky., said in an interview. A group of five House Democrats is demanding debt stabilization measures, which the left rejects. In the meantime, Biden will have to decide whether to embrace or reject the bipartisan $579 billion infrastructure framework backed by 11 Republicans, who haven't released key details.

WASHINGTON — Lawmakers in Congress wrestled with what the new era of federal health care policy would look like after the Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the latest existential challenge to Obamacare. "And now, we’re going to try to make it bigger and better — establish, once and for all, affordable health care as a basic right of every American citizen." "We will continue to work to lower health care costs by lowering the cost of prescription drugs," Pelosi told reporters. For now, there's no consensus among Republicans on what an alternative health care system should look like. Romney said that while he couldn't predict future lawsuits, any major health care changes in the near term would likely have to come from Congress.

Bipartisan support for an infrastructure deal grew Wednesday, as 21 senators — including 11 Republicans — publicly backed the proposal, a signal that talks have progressed as the White House-imposed deadline looms. “We support this bipartisan framework that provides an historic investment in our nation’s core infrastructure needs without raising taxes,” the group said in a statement. The statement provides no substantive details, but it is significant that 11 Republicans support the plan, which needs 60 votes to pass. Their public support indicates that Republicans feel the urgency to reach a deal on popular physical infrastructure measures soon or risk Democrats cutting them out of the process. A Monmouth University poll released earlier Wednesday found that 68 percent of American voters favor Biden's infrastructure proposal, including 41 percent of Republicans, while 29 percent oppose it.

The proposal serves as the last sustained effort to strike a bipartisan infrastructure deal before Democrats move to pass legislation on their own. Ten Republican senators support a bipartisan infrastructure framework, enough for a potential bill to get through the chamber if all skeptical Democrats back it. Leaving Geneva, Switzerland, after meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, Biden said he had not seen the details of the bipartisan plan. Paying for the infrastructure plan could be an issue. A possible revenue raiser in the bipartisan plan — tying the gas tax to inflation — could effectively break his pledge.

WASHINGTON — Progressive Democrats working on a bipartisan infrastructure deal hardened their position on the legislation after tense talks Monday. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., a member of the Senate Democrats' leadership team, came out against a bipartisan agreement Monday night after meeting with a bipartisan group of 10 senators. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Jeff Merkley of Oregon have insisted that any deal must include action on climate change. That means the bipartisan group will need to secure more than 10 Republicans to get its proposal across the finish line. Republicans said it was part of the plan; Democrats said it wasn't.

The Democratic and Republican senators pitching an infrastructure deal face early hurdles in pushing their roughly $1 trillion plan through Congress. The bipartisan proposal crafted by 10 senators would focus on transportation, broadband and water, and would not raise taxes to offset costs. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, told CNBC on Tuesday when asked whether there would be enough Republican support to pass the plan. As the 10 senators try to win support for their proposal, Democrats have set the groundwork to approve a bill on their own through budget reconciliation. However, the path appears blocked for now as at least one Democrat involved in the talks, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, insists he wants to pass a plan with bipartisan support.

The White House is giving bipartisan economic talks until the end of June for a deal to pan out. White House officials are indicating to congressional Democrats that they're giving bipartisan infrastructure negotiations until the end of June before potentially shoving Republicans aside and moving ahead with a Democratic-only plan.

REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 15 (Reuters) - Democrats in the U.S. Congress on Tuesday criticized a $1.2 trillion infrastructure proposal by a bipartisan group of Senate moderates as neglecting some of their key priorities, raising questions about the measure's fate. The Senate proposal, which emerged after negotiations between Biden and Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito collapsed last week, insufficiently addresses climate change and other Democratic goals, including spending on healthcare and childcare, Democrats said. The $1.2 trillion package, to span eight years, is below Biden's most recent proposal of $1.7 trillion. The two parties also disagree about how to pay for infrastructure and have not yet released details of how the money would be spent. "I think we should go bigger," said Richard Neal, chairman of the House's powerful Ways and Means Committee.

Live Live Updates: Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan Leaves Democrats a Big Choice A plan from a bipartisan group of lawmakers does not address climate change and omits money for child and elder care. A bipartisan group of 10 senators met last week to discuss a framework for an infrastructure package. The group is pushing for a proposal that is much smaller than the $1.9 trillion package that Mr. Biden has proposed. But Biden administration officials said that they were mindful of how Mr. Putin seemed to get the better of Mr. Trump in Helsinki. The spectacle in 2018 drew sharp condemnations from across the political spectrum for providing an opportunity for Mr. Putin to spread falsehoods.

McConnell took a dour view on the likelihood of a bipartisan Senate group succeeding with an infrastructure bill. Pelosi signaled she's unwilling to strike a deal with Republicans if it meant substantially cutting the package. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell provided a downbeat view on the latest roughly $1 trillion infrastructure framework negotiated by a faction of centrist senators from both parties. The plan would provide just over $1 trillion in new infrastructure spending focused on roads, bridges, ports, and highways. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also appears to be against dropping climate initiatives if it means passing a watered-down bill with the GOP.

Environmentalists applauded the recommendation from Ms. Haaland, although they noted Mr. Biden has yet to make a final decision. Mr. Cox, the Republican governor of Utah, said in a statement that he was disappointed. Senator Mitt Romney, the Utah Republican, has said that he doesn’t want any president to determine the footprints of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, but rather that the borders should be determined by Congress. He is also a key member of a bipartisan group negotiating with the White House to win passage of a major infrastructure bill that is a legislative priority for Mr. Biden.
