Rep. Brady said:

“We’re all hopeful they can find common ground here.

“I’m less optimistic about the votes for it, because clearly Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer want this to be the pilot chute that pulls along that three-and-a-half trillion-dollar massive expansion of the welfare state. There won’t be Republican support for that.

“If they were truly separated, there’d be strong support for infrastructure. We ought to get it done.”
