Transcript for Biden, bipartisan group of senators reach deal on infrastructure bill
president Biden standing outside the white house today with a very rare announcement in this polarized country. The president standing with Republicans and Democrats by his side, saying, "We have a deal on infrastructure." So, what does this mean for jobs, for roads, brin bridges and the internet? And of course, does the president have the votes? Rachel Scott at the white house tonight. Do you have a deal? Reporter: Today, president Biden walking out of the white house with senators from both parties to announce they've struck an agreement to rebuild the nation's critical infrastructure. In answer to your direct question, we have a deal. Reporter: The president saying this proves Republicans and Democrats can work together. None of us got what we all -- what we wanted. I clearly didn't get all I wanted. But this reminds me of the days we used to get an awful lot done up in the United States congress. Reporter: The $1.2 trillion plan includes including $579 billion in new spending, for things like transportation, roads, bridges and broadband in rural communities. It also calls for the largest investment in the rail system since amtrak began.- still, the president says he wanted more. I asked for 90, I got 66 billion. Electric buses, 7.5 billion. I asked for 15, I couldn't get all of it but we compromised. Reporter: The plan would not raise taxes. And president Biden says he won't give up on the so-called human infrastructure, funding for child care and education that Progressives want. He says he will push that through with just Democrat votes. So by moving forward with this two-track system, are you putting the bipartisan bill in Everybody tells me what my party is, my party's divided. Well, my party is divided. My party's divided, but my party is also rational. If they can't get every single thing they want, but all that they have in the bill before them is good, are they going to vote no? I don't think so. Reporter: The president made it clear he will not sign one of these bills without the other. Senate minority leader Mitch Mcconnell calling that strategy head-spinning, saying it completely undermines the bipartisan agreement that was just reached. Bottom line here, David, still a long road ahead. Rachel Scott, thank you.
