  • CNN published this video item, entitled “Tapper presses Buttigieg on infrastructure: Are you hurting your cause?” – below is their description.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg defended the Biden administration’s broad definition of infrastructure in the American Jobs Plan, saying President Joe Biden is still aiming for Republican support for the plan while looking for progress on it by Memorial Day.

    “I very much believe that all of these things are infrastructure because infrastructure is the foundation that allows us go about our lives,” Buttigieg told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

    Biden is pushing his roughly $2 trillion plan for improving the nation’s infrastructure as his next major legislative focus after successfully signing his massive coronavirus relief package into law. The plan, however, has already met resistance from congressional Republicans who balk at its price tag and consider its definition of infrastructure — from transportation to reshaping the US economy and social safety net — as overly broad.
