McConnell: White House infrastructure plan 'not going to get support from our side'

Mitch McConnell speaks to reporters after the weekly Republican caucus policy luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington, January 26, 2021.

The hopes that Washington could scrape together a bipartisan infrastructure package took a hit Thursday.

Mitch McConnell, the Minority Leader of the Senate, told reporters that the more than$ 2 trillion plan the White House unveiled Wednesday is not going to get support from our side. The proposal would invest in roads, bridges, airports, broadband, water systems, electric vehicles and job training programs and raise corporate tax rate to 28% to offset the spending.

The Republican also vowed to oppose the larger Democratic agenda under Biden, who passed his first major initiative in the$ 1.9 trillion Coronavirus Relief package this month.

McConnell said in a news conference in Kentucky that I 'm going to fight them every step of the way, because I think this is the wrong prescription for America.
