Transcript for Senate Democrats lose vote to advance infrastructure bill
Now to that big test vote in the continuing bipartisan efforts to agree on president Biden's $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan. Not one Republican vote for this today but as Rachel Scott reports tonight that doesn't mean that this won't happen. She's on the hill tonight. Reporter: Tonight senate Republicans unanimously blocking an effort to move forward on a bipartisan infrastructure package. Collins, no. Reporter: Republicans say they needed more time to finalize a deal but senate majority leader chuck Schumer took a gamble. The deadline has moved them far more quickly. Reporter: Working on a $1.2 trillion package. How long are you willing to give these bipartisan negotiations? My fear is we could see a repetition of what we saw with the affordable care act where discussions went on and on and on and never went anyplace. Reporter: Schumer's gamble may have paid off. Some Republicans saying they want a deal by the weekend. If there is a vote Monday you will vote yes? In a statement tonight that bipartisan group of senators says that they have made significant progress. Just moments ago president Biden was asked if he thinks they will reach a deal. The president responding, yes, we will. David. Rachel Scott tracking it all as always.
