Summary

It would also preserve Trump era tax cuts, which are directly countered in Biden's proposed funding.After the GOP group met with Biden last week to discuss their $568 billion counterproposal, Biden gave them a Tuesday deadline to bring him a new plan to negotiate, but that never happened.Instead, the group met with Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg and Commerce Sec. Gina Raimondo and a new plan wasn't introduced, with the senator from West Virginia who led the Republican plan, Shelley Moore Capito, telling reporters after the meeting that there was "progress, but we still got a ways to go.""I think they're [Buttigieg and Raimondo] digesting what we proposed, and I think the plan is for them to react to that," Capito added.Capito's office said in a statement to Insider that Friday's White House offer was "well above the range of what can pass Congress with bipartisan support," and said Republicans and the White House still differ on what's considered infrastructure, how much should be spent on it, and where that money should come from."Based on today's meeting, the groups seem further apart after two meetings with White House staff than they were after one meeting with President Biden," Capito's office said.
