Transcript for Biden announces infrastructure deal
We do want to turn to Washington and president Biden saying, quote, we have a deal on that trillion dollar plus infrastructure plan to rebuild America's roads, bridges and so much more but this is far from a done deal. Rachel Scott is at the white house with the very latest. Good morning, Rachel. Reporter: Cecilia, good morning. Yes, this is a rare bipartisan agreement but there is still a long road ahead. President Biden coming before the cameras with Democrats and Republicans by his side to announce they have reached a deal on a plan to rebuild the nation's infrastructure. The total price tag on this, $1.2 trillion. 579 billion in new spending. This does include money for roads and bridges, for the rail system and broadband internet but much of what Democrats wanted in the package like fudding for education and child care was left out so they're now working to push through a much larger package on their own. The president telling me that they need to be done in tandem, that he will not sign one bill without the other and senate minority leader Mitch Mcconnell calling that head spinning and completely undermines the bipartisan agreement that was just reached and senator Lindsey graham says if those two items are linked, that it's the ultimate deal breaker. The president also said both sides, neither side got everything they wanted. Rachel, thank you so much.
